1000 and counting

This bronze model of the city centre of York is sited outside the west end of York Minster. Designed by The Dog Rose Trust it has Braille labels and is set at a height that is wheelchair friendly. Above all it is a tactile model that can be and is enjoyed by any visitor to the city.
This is my 1000th post on CDP. I will be taking a break for the summer but hope to be back in early autumn.

Between the trees and beyond the roofs is the steeple of St Mary's church. De-consecrated in 1958 parts of the building may date back to the 9th century. It has the tallest steeple in the city and was briefly the home of the Exchequer during the reign of Edward II when the government moved to York .

Historical Sign

This sign in Lady Peckitt's Yard almost qualifies as an historical object in its own right.
