Chapter House Street, looking towards Ogleforth. Morning, 23 March 2004. Quiet and peaceful and perfect.   Ornate gateway – entrance to the Treasurer's House

Chapter House Street: 'A charming cobbled lane in the Minster precinct, bounded by small houses, the flanks of the Treasurer's House and old walls, the choir and chapter house at the end. For variety of colour and texture, subtle juxtaposition of small elements and sudden contrast of small with great, this is unexcelled anywhere in England.'

David Lloyd, Esher Report (1968)

I can't add anything to that, except to say that these photos of Chapter House Street were taken on a bright sunny morning in March 2004.
