This is the 3rd version. The first was made before Tudor times and would not have had roses. The Tudor version had lots more lead and less light. This modern creation is held together with Epoxy Resin and has more glass and more light. Fascinating history and technology.

As one can see from the photograph taken from outside that I've added, this is a beautiful piece of art & history and a must visit when in York. The history Behind the window is a story in itself as one can view from other reviews on here. Worth a look inside - see the minster review for costs, Enjoy

There is so much to look at within the Minster it can be so easy to miss so many wonderful things of which this is one. Truly beautiful with so much detail and must be seen.

You can easily miss this window on the East side of York Minster, but it fabulous & worth looking for. The window was constructed to mark the end of the War of the Roses' so it's well old.

Normally the face of God is so far up you cannot see it, but on this fascinating tour of the work of the conservators who are working on York Minster's Great East Window I was given a close up view of the panel which tops the whole window - God "The Alpha and Omega". I arrived at York MInster at... More

Do not miss this stunning window. Hearing about the history of it and what it represents just adds to its glory.

This is one of those examples of having to know what you’re looking for, in order to fully appreciate it. The Rose Window sits on top of the front of York Minster, and represents the end of the Tudor wars. But if that hadn’t been pointed out to me in advance, I wouldn’t have recognised it for what it is,... More

From either inside or outside this is a most wonderful price of art. The glass colours are fantastic and the overall size is breathtaking. Some work ongoing so a little limited from the inside for photographs.

We live here in York. I still find The Rose WIndow and the other windows so impressive. You must see these while in York. Especially if it is sunny outside and the sun shines through.

If you are really interested in The Minster stained glass it would be well worth your while booking a place on the Bedern Glaizers Studio Tours. You get to see behind the scenes and to watch the conservators.
