Timeless Treasure

This almost timeless view shows Howden Minster in 1915, known as the Minster Church of St Peter and St Paul, which is built on Anglo Saxon foundations.  Following the Norman Conquest it came into the ownership of the Bishop of Durham and underwent a number of alterations until it was fully completed by the 1340s.  However, it gradually fell into decline, and today you will find ruins on the opposite side of the building, which are now maintained by English Heritage.


That’s the end of the trail!  Why not visit the Howden Centre to find out more about the the town?  Go straight on, with the Minster on your right-hand side, and through the Market Place.

The Howden Centre is directly opposite, on the other side of Hailgate, near the supermarket.
