York Minster – Piazza

As Surveyor of the Fabric for York Minster, Andrew Arrol is overseeing a range of projects both for the Minster itself and for other properties in the precinct, such as the fifteenth-century St William’s College, which now acts as a conference centre and restaurant.

The York Minster Revealed project includes a major hard landscape regeneration scheme at the approach to the South Transept. The former A64 trunk road is being replaced with a new Piazza incorporating a new ramp and stairing to permit full disabled access in to the Cathedral. The project was completed in June 2013 and has transformed the landscape setting of the Minster.
