The Grand Old Duke could exercise his troops by marching them up and down these rather splendid towers, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed he could Ray.

I'm sure you will be adMINISTERering this series in your usual devoted way, Brian
Brian Walbey: Oh dear, groan! Actually a very good pun Richard, thanks for your kind thought.
Sucj a grandeur, I love all the details, I wonder how long it took to built it
Brian Walbey: It is a beautiful building Chantal. The first known church on the site was in 627 but the Abbey as we see it now was started in 1220 and was finally competed in 1472. Since then there have been various structural changes and refurbishments, but this is pretty much as it has been for the last 500+ years.

I hope you show some pictures from inside the Minster, Brian?
Brian Walbey: Sorry I won't be Lisl. We only had a few hours in York and it was £9 each to get in, with all the other hordes of people, so decent photos would have been out of the question. We took a river cruise instead, you will be seeing that in October.

York is Münster's twin city - and it is a beautiful old town, indeed - a bit like our medieval town. I have been there for some times.
Brian Walbey: I didn't know that Philine, the people of both York and Munster should be proud to be twinned, York is quite a spectacular city, I'm not surprised you have been there a few times.
York Minster is really beautiful Brian!
Brian Walbey: Yes it is Richard, tremendous inside, we'd been in before so took a river cruise instead on this visit to York.
A magnificent structure, it is a long time since I was last there
Brian Walbey: Yes it is Martin, tremendous inside, we'd been in before so took a river cruise instead on this visit to York.
A beautiful shot of it Brian. A very striking image in b&w.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet, I felt it looked better in B.& W.
This is quite a magnificent church.
Brian Walbey: Indeed it is Mary, but more than a church, it is a Minster, another name for a cathedral or abbey, and I would guess at least 6 to 8 large parish churches would fit inside. It is beautiful inside.
This looks a good parade route for the Grand Old Duke of York's 10,000 men.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Jacquelyn and they wouldn't even have to go up and down hill smile
Lovely Brian... looking forward to this series..
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ronky, although I am showing some other bits and pieces from York.

Looks good in b&w. I can see what attracts the tourists.
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely building Alan, we went in years ago but not this time, we took a river cruise instead.
