The Minster at Southwell was probably built in 956 under Oskytel, Archbishop of York, as one of the four Minsters of the See of York (the others are Ripon, Beverley and York.) The present building dates from the early 12th century when the existing building was re-constructed by Archbishop Thomas II. Many additions have been made since, including the Early English Quire (early 13th century) and the Chapter House on the north side of the Minster (c 1290). The Minster was granted Cathedral status in 1884. The photograph also shows the ruins of the 14th century Archbishop of York's Palace.
