Took the opportunity of a dentist’s appointment to go into York. First there was a stroll through the museum gardens past this abbey
or should I say the ruins of St Mary’s Abbey which was dissolved during Henry the 8ths reign.
Thence to the lovely church very close by of St Olave, St Olaf, patron saint of Norway. originally built in 1055, 11 years before William the conqueror came from Normandy.
Entrance is from the North side, just outside the gardens.
The font dates from1860
Around the walls are plaques depicting the stations of the cross,presented in 1964
The Altar dates from the 17th century.
