At the heart of York, soaring above the medieval rooftops, lies the majestic Minster, one of the most famous and inspiring religious buildings in the world. Around this mighty edifice the jumble of cobbled streets and alleys, and the mixture of medieval churches and buildings and Georgian grandeur provide a unique experience for any visitor. In this new book from Jarrold Publishing, Neil Jinkerson offers a highly original and evocative photographic portrait of York. Highlights include the Minster, The Shambles, the famous gateways known as bars, St Williams College, as well as more contemporary images such as Bettys, the stunning railway station and the inspiring new architecture at Terrys Avenue. Each photograph is accompanied by quotes from writers and travellers throughout the ages, who have been similarly impressed with this delightful city.
