13 May 2017: The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, sails down the Humber at the head of a flotilla of vessels on the way into Hull where he re-dedicated Holy Trinity Church as Hull Minster. He carried a lantern with a flame lit at Holy Trinty's 'mother' church, All Saints in Hessle, East Yorkshire.
The voyage harked back to 700-year-old Holy Trinity's mediaeval origins and also celebrated Hull's maritime heritage.
Holy Trinty is England's largest parish church and the minster-making is one of the keynote events during Hull's year as UK City of Culture.
