3. The Church of All Saints, North Street, York

Its history, architecture and stained glass windows


There is an excellent illustrated guide available in the church and the proceeds are always needed to maintain these fantastic medieval churches which are NOT museums, but working functional institutions serving their parishioners and need all the public financial support they can get.

 PLEASE buy the guide or make a DONATION to help with the upkeep of this magnificent church

There are late 12th century interior sections, including reused Roman masonry, but most of the building of the Church of All Saints, York, including the 120ft spire, is early 15th century. The roofs are quite old, adding to a real medieval atmosphere and a fine pulpit of 1675. There is also some fine early 15th century stained glass in the west window.


Interior

Looking down the nave to the chancel of All Saints Church, York. The first reference to a church on this site come in 1089 though there seems to have been a church here before the Norman Conquest.

 

An aisle was added in the 12th century and in the 13th century the chancel was reconstructed in the Early English style. In the 14th century the east end of All saints was extensively rebuilt and the windows display Geometric and Curvilinear tracery of the Decorated period of Gothic architecture and the aisles extended eastwards.

 

Most of the what you see now dates from the late 14th and early 15th century when the tower and spire were erected and the nave extended and the arcades reconstructed in what seems to have been a major rebuilding of All Saints Church.
