Beverley Minster

One of my favourite churches in Britain, perfectly captured in this arial shot from Mark Fisher. I made Beverley the target of a day return trip by train many years ago, leaving Bristol at 7am and getting only two and a half hours here before I had to come home again. It rises like an ocean liner from the flat fields around it, and leaves an impression in the mind that lasts a lifetime.
