Leys

44 45 Situated within the city walls of York is a medieval church ley. This alignment is spectacularly visible from the tower of York Minster. The best way to walk the ley is from its starting point, a spit of land between the Foss and Ouse rivers, which was once Templar land. The ley passes through the site of St. Georges chapel, a Templar building, the Norman castle, Cliffords Tower, with its 11th century chapel, the spired church of St. Marys, dating from the 11th century now York Heritage Centre, and on to the 15th century All Saints Pavement, a church built on the site of earlier 11th and 7th century churches. All Saints is the oldest church on the line and sits at the crossroads at the centre of the city. The next sites along the line are the 14th century St. Samsons church, now a Senior Citizens Centre and the Minster itself, St. Peters cathedral. The ley passes directly below the 11th century tower at the crossing of the nave and transepts. The line terminates at the 13th century Archbishops Palace chapel, but is inaccessible to the public. Opposite York Minster rises above the roofs of medieval York. The principle site on an alignment of seven ecclesiastical buildings. yOrk miNSTEr lEy York, England
