Summary Description

It is the west facade which is best known to visitors to York. This was entirely rebuilt in 1867 by G.F. Jones who unfortunately used a yellower stone than the magnesian limestone of the other exterior wall surfaces (which appears to be the same stone as that used for the construction of the Minster).

Visiting and Facilities

The church is open for worship.
