Mr Monkey ascends York Minster's East Front, August 11th

"They're not scaring me with a bit of stone"

Mr Monkey looking some carved gargoyles Mr Monkey watching a carver work some stone

The carvers who do the fine three dimensional detail tried to scare Mr Monkey (and all the other visitors) off by leaving some scary carved creatures outside their shed, but Mr Monkey wasn't afraid. He went in and watched a craftsman removing the unnecessary part of a piece of stone intended to replace a decaying lump of the east front of the minster.
