NOTES: The rebuilding of the Minster in Gothic styles began between 1230 and c.1241 with the southern wing of the transept, built by Archbishop de Gray. Work on the west front in Decorated style began in 1291 and was completed up to the roof of the nave in 1338. The south tower was built in 1433-1477, and the north tower in 1470-1477. The Great West Window, known locally as the 'Heart of Yorkshire', was painted by Master Richard Ketelbarn between 1338 and 1339.
