£500k cash boost for next phase of York Minster repairs

York Minster has received £500,000 of new funding from a government sponsored body to help support critically important conservation and repair works.

The Dean of York, the Very Reverend Vivienne Faull has welcomed the grant which is part of a £14.5 million funding package announced by the First World War Centenary Repairs Fund.

Up to 40 cathedrals across England will receive grants from £25,000 to more than £800,000 for essential repairs including roofing, stained-glass and stonework.

The new funding will provide a welcome boost to the next great phase of repair and restoration already underway at York Minster: the 11 bays of the Quire Aisle on the south side of the cathedral.

Cash will also be directed to the repair of stonework in the Lady Chapel, located directly under the Minster’s Great East Window.

"Cathedrals continue to have a vitally important role in the lives of communities across the country. People come for worship, contemplation and sanctuary, to experience the most exquisite architecture and to sense and measure the immense histories of these buildings against our finite existence."
