A pleasant summer's day in St Helens Square

 


The Parish of St. Helen with St. Martin

St Helen's Church in St Helen's Square with its octagonal tower. Stonegate leads off down towards one the towers of the Minster. St Helen's is now the Civic church of York where the Lord Mayor and Corporation attend Harvest Thanksgiving in state each year.

 

Again, on the left, Stonegate heads towards the great central tower of the Minster.

 

The interior of St Helen's Church. St Helen's Church dates from the 14th century and partly demolished in the 16th century.

 PLEASE leave a DONATION to help in the upkeep of this lovely old church

 

Stained glass detail from St Helen's, St Helen's Square. This church was the former Guild Church of the medieval Guild of Glass Painters and small panes (fragments at times) of medieval and later glass still survive.

Refreshment and entertainment in St Helen's Square

Betty's Cafe - famous tea rooms!

 

St Helen's Square viewed from in front of the Mansion House. Street performers are often in action on the right hand side. St Helen's Square was once the churchyard of St Helen's Church.

 

A band (Police Band?) marching and playing away from St Helen's Square and St Helen's Church.


The narrow medieval cobbled street of Stonegate off St Helens' Square

Ye Olde Starre Inn in Stonegate with its rare beam sign hung above Stonegate and a somewhat secluded courtyard for a quiet peaceful drink.

 

Looking north-east up Stonegate to the Minster, just like the more famous Shambles, it has a real medieval feel to it.

 

Mulberry Hall is a well known 15th century medieval timber-framed building in Stonegate and was once the house of the Bishop of Chester.
