Stonemason Andrew Gomersall
From her newfound warmth and comfort Dusty the starving stray cat watched the stonemason at work. Her stillness was just what was needed. Her image was carved into the block of limestone the mason was working on and will now gaze over the East Yorkshire countryside for hundreds of years to come.
The Tadcaster limestone carving is the hoodstone, the base of a five piece pinnacle to replace one toppled by an unusual wind gust in February last year from the Tympanum roof between the distinctive twin towers of Beverley Minster.
