Discover the work of Grinling Gibbons, the most celebrated British woodcarver of the 17th century, through a new exhibition at York Minster as part of a national programme to mark the 300th anniversary of his death.

The year-long exhibition will focus on three stone monuments that Gibbons produced for the cathedral, of Archbishops Dolben, Lamplugh and Sterne, placing these in the context of his life and wider work.

Gibbons spent part of his early career in York, training in the city before moving to London where, in 1693, he was appointed master sculptor and carver in wood to King William III.

Entry to the exhibition is free with general admission.

The exhibition is part of Grinling Gibbons 300 – Carving a Place in History, a national programme led by the Grinling Gibbons Society to mark the tercentenary. For further details visit:
