York Minster Cathedral Transformed Into Field Of Grass For Rose Dinner

Grass Covers Entire Floor of Famous Cathedral

One of the largest gothic cathedral in Northern Europe hosted a fundraising dinner on June 8th to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Yet the 900 guests must have been surprised when they entered York Minster in northern England to find the floor of the Cathedral transformed into a lawn. While workers laid down 16,000 square feet of fresh grass that covered the stone floor of the 14th century church, it appears that the job of mowing fell to the priests.
