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

"It's very complicated work to do so high up"

Mr Monkey looking at a row of finials Mr Monkey in front of an eroded statue

Mr Monkey inspected the decaying stonework while one of the restoration workers explained what they were doing, and showed Mr Monkey a coloured diagram of the planned work. They're starting off by removing the pointy finials, replacing the rotten stone work beneath them with freshly carved pieces from the Stoneyard, and then putting the finials back in place.
