In the footsteps of York Minster’s medieval masons

Sam tells the story of how he has followed in the footsteps of medieval stonemasons to work on the world-famous York Minster.

We worked with the Heritage Lottery Fund to deliver a film that would sum up how lottery players have helped apprentices, like Sam, learn how to create stone masonry that will last for generations. Filmed on location at York Minster, we followed the story of a shy young man who blossomed into a craftsman more than able to stand tall next to the skilled generations of stonemasons.
