The Chapter House Ceiling, York Minster, York, Yorkshire, England, Great Britain
York Minster, York, Yorkshire.

The Chapter House ceiling showing the tops of six of the eight stained glass windows.

The design of the vault was altered after the building was begun and instead of being stone and supported by the usual central column, a unique timber roof structure was constructed which is, in effect, a Gothic dome.
