Kings Manor continued...

To see the original Kings Manor Post click here

If you look at yesterday's post you can see the vaulting to the Chapter House at York Minster - the above photo is taken in the roof space directly above the vaulting. It is an incredible maze of medieval timbers which after a little careful study reveal an intelligent use of design to transfer the weight of the leaded roof to the octagonal side walls.

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.
