York Minster :: Shared Description

York Minster is a Gothic cathedral and is one of the largest of its kind in Northern Europe. The Minster is the seat of the Archbishop of York, the second-highest office of the Church of England, and is cathedral for the Diocese of York.
The first church on the site was a wooden structure built hurriedly in 627 AD. A stone structure was completed in 637 AD, since which the Church has undergone many refurbishments as well as serious damage including a fire in 1984 which destroyed the roof in the south transept.
