Minster Tower

Minster Central Tower from Chapter House Street.

The central tower of the Minster is of 15th century build. In the late 14th, early 15th century the central tower was being remodelled when in 1407 it collapsed. Over the next 60 years the tower we see today was built. It is 64 m (210 ft) high and has an accessible walkway round the top with views of York and the surrounding Vale of York to the Pennines, Moors and Wolds.
