Kings Manor continued....

During the afternoon we had an option to go and see various parts of York Minster.

I opted to go to the Mason's Loft and Chapter House Roof. Before we got there we had the chance to see inside the magnificent Chapter House (which is open to the public). It is a remarkable piece of work, second only to
Sainte Chapelle, Paris in it's breathtaking use of glass and light.

There is more information about the Chapter House and a larger photograph of the vaulting at my photoblog site here

There are more events organised by the SPAB Yorkshire Regional Group including visits to Kirkstall Abbey in May, Nostell Priory and Knedlington Old Hall in June, and Darnall Crucible Shops in September.
