Down one of the, almost hidden, 'snickelways' off Goodramgate, called Bedern, is the remains of the 14th century Bedern Chapel. It was the Chapel of the College of the Vicars Choral of York Minster and was consecrated in 1349. The building is now a major centre for the conservation of stained glass. You can go on guided tours of the Bedern Glaziers' Studio, home of the Bedern Glaziers's Trust whose acclaimed work, including for the Minster itself, is known all over Europe.
