York Minster is a cathedral in York, England, and is one of the largest of its kind in Northern Europe. The minster is the seat of the Archbishop of York, the second-highest office of the Church of England, and is the cathedral for the Diocese of York.

York Minster is the second largest Gothic cathedral of Northern Europe and clearly charts the development of English Gothic architecture from Early English through to the Perpendicular Period.

The West Window is best viewed from half way down the Nave or from the central crossing. Paid for by Archbishop Melton and painted by Master Richard Ketelbarn between 1338 and 1339. It is affectionately known as the 'Heart of Yorkshire' because of the heart-shape in its flamboyant tracery. The tracery was re-carved by carvers in the Minster Stoneyard between 1989 and 1990, the original tracery having decayed beyond repair.
