A Merry Christmas - The Beveley Sisters

Yet another bright, sparkling and mild day so a chance to walk some of the Christmas pud off with a bit of sight seeing in the market town of Beverley.

Beverley Minster what a magnificent building!

The West Tower.

West Door & Towers.

South Transept.

South Transept showing Flying Buttress.

North Tower,

and Doorway.

The Naive.

East Door & Window.

"For all the Saints who from their labours rest".

One of 3 Pipe Organs.

The glass in this panel in the Apse, above the alter, is the oldest in the building dating back to the 1300's.

There was never going to be enough time to visit York Minster so this excellent model in the Minster was second best.

Part of the South Aisle

Which way now?

The Bandstand.

No time to go into The Sun Pub but fond memories of a great musical evening the last time I was up here.

St Mary's Church

and just as fitting finale we found this Common Gull on the Duck Pond close to Beverley Racecourse.
