The Chapter House of York Minster was the place where the day to day business was undertaken in the 13th century and it is a superb example of the Gothic architecture. When you enter the enormous circular space through an arched door, there is a wonderfully carved Madonna and child stand, and the soaring stained glass windows lead your eye upwards. Far above your head a wonderful vaulted ceiling is enough to make you gasp. I was so inspired by this ceiling which is divided into interesting symmetrical shapes. I am passionate about British architectural heritage and this ceiling immediately claimed it place as the second in my series based on Sacred Places.
