Eye Eye! Watch
I think that is actually a planning regulation in York as well hence why all new buildings are still small, every building has to be smaller than the Minster.
I hope it stays. I do like really tall buildings and want more of them in many places, but we also need to protect some places from them. I think York should be one of them given we have such an important piece of architecture to look after.
Just go up the Minster Tower, its only £2, its higher and its more historic going up it, plus you dont then go back down again straight away. It is 400 steps or something though.
And I agree...it doesn't fit it with the rest of York.It looks pretty at night but in the day it really annoys me...the York skyline used to be really pretty as I was driving towards York...now there's a big stupid wheel thing and it looks so out of place!
