York Deanery

The Deanery of York is home to over 153,000 people. The Diocese’ mother church, York Minster, is situated in this popular city, founded by the Romans as Eboracum in 71 AD. In the Middle Ages, York grew as a major wool trading centre, and in the 19th century, York became a hub of the railway network and a confectionery manufacturing centre. In recent decades, the city’s main economies are in the service industry, tourism, science and technology. Find out more about the churches in York Deanery here.

The Archbishop shared in his Pilgrimage journey as it came to a close with interviews broadcast by BBC Radio 2 Good Morning Sunday with Clare Balding, local BBC stations and Premier Christian Radio. He released pilgrimage statistics over 1.5 million steps along the way
