High Bridge, Howden, Goole, East Yorkshire, DN14 7BS Tel: 0370 333 1181

Mentioned in the doomsday book, Howden Minster is a Grade I listed Church. Not only does it date back to the 14th Century, but it is one of the largest and most magnificent churches in the East Riding of Yorkshire. The 135-foot tower dominates the Howden landscape and was built by Bishop Walter Skirlaw around 1390. Although the Chancel collapsed during a thunderstorm on St. Stephen's Day 1696, the ruins remain today (view-able only from the outside), and are attached to the still operational minster church.
