The Deanery is the private residence of the Dean of York Minster. The Dean is responsible for the day to day running of the Minster.
The Grade II listed Deanery building (located in the northern corner of Minster Yard) was built in 1938-9. It was designed in a neo-Georgian style by Rutherford & Syme (a York-based architectural practice) to replace an earlier building that stood to the southeast of the Minster Library in what is now Dean's Park.
At least five black & white photographs of the earlier building (now referred to as The Old Deanery) are available on the City of York Libraries and Archives Service website. Links for two of these are provided in the 'External Links' section below.
