All Saints Pavement
This is one of two Churches in York called All Saints Church and is generally referred to as All Saints Pavement. It stands on one of the oldest paved streets in city called High Ousegate and this is from where its name is derived. It was mentioned in the Doomsday book of 1086 although the majority of the present church dates from the 13th and 14th centuries. The notable features of this church include its 17th century pulpit from where John Wesley used to preach and its unusual octagonal shaped tower. During the middle ages this tower had a burning lantern to guide travellers through the dense Forest of Galtres towards York. This lantern burned every night for over a century and can still be seen at the top of the tower today. Access to the church is free and it open daily throughout the year from 9.30am until 4pm Monday to Saturday and from 8.30am until 7.30pm on Sundays.
