📍 From Inside, United Kingdom
The Minster Church of St. John the Baptist in West Yorkshire is an Anglo-Saxon church built around 1050. The church served as a priory until the 16th century Reformation when the priory was dissolved. It is now a Grade I listed building, one of the best preserved examples of Norman architecture in Britain. It has a nave and two aisles, and a beautiful 12th-century chancel, as well as a tower from the 15th century. Inside, the church is paved with Roman tiles, and there are many artefacts from the Anglo-Saxon period. The church also has many stained glass windows, including some from the 15th century. Visitors can take a tour and learn about the history of the building and view interesting features such as the Anglo-Saxon altar cloth. Services are held daily and those looking for a place to stop and reflect in between their travels to the Yorkshire area will find this church to be the perfect spot.
