York stained glass tour
Join us on Tuesday 20th March for a walking tour of some of York’s finest stained glass.
This event is open to all members, and we are delighted that Holy Trinity Goodramgate is opening especially for us. The event will start at 10.30am with coffee and biscuits at the Kings Manor Refectory for coffee and biscuits.
After coffee we walk to Holy Trinity, Goodramgate, tucked away ‘in retirement’ and famous for its historic box pews. The church boasts a remarkable east window, given in 1471 by its rector John Walker.
From there we go to St Martin’s, Coney Street . The church was a casualty of wartime bombing, but its west window of 1437 had been removed to safety. Its scale and detail makes it one of the most rewarding medieval windows in the city.
Finally on to All Saints, North Street, probably the city’s most famous parish destination for stained glass lovers with its unrivalled collection of stained glass, much of it the gift of the merchant families of York.
The tour will take about 3 hours and then the afternoon is free to enjoy York.
