Beverley Minster is often described as the best non-cathedral church in England. Visitors are surprised to find such a splendid building in a small flourishing market town. In the Middle Ages the whole of Beverley was a sanctuary. There is a Saxon chair or Frith stool associated with this custom. A large Norman font is regularly used and medieval glass can be seen in the east window. Georgian restorers were responsible for a classical reredos and organ screen, the former restored in the 19th century and a new wooden organ screen carved by local craftsman.
