St. Michael le Belfrey Church (York)

St. Michael le Belfrey is one of the many historic churches in the ancient city of York.

It stands in High Petergate beside the magnificent York Minster, and is completely dwarfed by it, but actually St. Michael's is one of the largest churches in the city.

Although an ancient foundation, it was largely rebuilt in the early 16th century, but has glass dating from around 1330.

There is an outstanding reredos designed by William Etty in 1712.

Guy Fawkes, of Gunpowder Plot fame, was baptised here, having been born across the road in what is now a hotel.
