All Saints Church, Pavement (York)

All Saints Church in the street known as Pavement is one of many old churches in the ancient cathedral city of York.

It is situated in the City Centre, close to two of York's most famous locations, The Shambles and Jorvik Viking Centre.

The church was built about 1400.

All Saints has a prominent octagonal lantern tower, which was used to guide travellers in from the nearby forest.

The nave is Perpendicular, and the crossing forms the chancel. The original chancel was demolished in 1782 to create a market.

The pulpit is 17th century, and has a goblet stem, and there are excellent windows, some by Kempe.

On the North door is an unusual brass knocker.
