Overview

Beverley Minster, one of England's greatest churches, is the creation of craftsmen and women over more than seven centuries. Who were they? How did they work? How was the Minster built and maintained? Analysis of tell-tale marks on wood and stone and of some written sources is beginning to provide the answers. This book, which will be of interest to all those interested in Beverley Minster and in how great churches were built, explains what has been discovered so far. It provides a new interpretation of the way in which the 14th-century nave was built, explains how the Minster was maintained after the Reformation and daringly rescued from collapse in the 18th century, and how it has been restored and maintained ever since.
