Nave | York MinsterYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
The ceiling of the nave of York Minster. The cathedral seat of the Archbishop of York, the building is one of the finest, and largest, Gothic structures in Northern Europe. There has been a church on the site since at least 627, to baptise King Edwin of Northumbria, but the current building was begun in 1220. The nave was built between 1280 and 1360, indicating what a massive project cathedrals like these were to construct. Constant maintenance continues today. Some of the glass in The Great West Window, show in this model and known as the ‘Heart of Yorkshire’, dates from sometime in the 12th Century. The famous red and gold dragon projecting into the central section of the nave can just be made out in the model. It’s origin is uncertain, but it may have been used as a pivot to open a great font. This section of the cathedral alone is 27m high, and 84m long.
Model made with 174 images taken from the floor of the nave. If you had better access, time and camera, this would be a great project.
