Doncaster Minster

The church in Doncaster started as a basilica which was burned down by pagans who killed King Edwin in 627. The Normans created a Deanery of Doncaster centered on the church of St Mary Magdalene which stood in the market place but it was not until the twelth century that a new church of St George was begun incorporating over the years various architectural styles. The church of St Mary Magdelene was thus superceded becoming a chapel-of-ease to St Georges Church.
