ALL his life, Peter Gibson has lived in the shadow of York Minster. The great Gothic cathedral is visible from the window of the small sitting room of his tiny Georgian mews cottage, in Precentor???s Court. It can be seen from his bedroom above and from the attic above that, where he still sits to hand-write his lectures and papers.
Outside his old-fashioned wooden front door, the Minster???s West Face rears up in its full Gothic majesty: inspiring, imposing and a little overwhelming.
Mr Gibson has given his working life in the service of this cathedral and a little part of him is woven into its very fabric.
Peter is also an Emeritus Churchwarden of St Michael le Belfrey – and he’s great fun. A very good friend.
