They recently posted a picture of what Duncombe Place would look like without St Wilfrid's.image1The left hand side of the photograph is a recent picture, but the right hand side shows the corner of Blake Street and the old Lop Lane before Duncombe Place was built in 1864 to provide a better view of the Minster and a more dignified means of access from the railway station. Below is another old picture from the same position.A Scene in York: York Minster from Lop Lane
