Off the south aisle of the choir in York Minster is an old wooden door. It leads down steps into the Zouche Chapel, a quiet place reserved for private prayer. The chapel itself is small and very peaceful, and it is where Grace finds herself when she is at her most frightened by the grip Hawise has on her mind.
The windows in the chapel contain a number of fragments of stained glass that have been recovered from other parts of the Minster. Now at eye level, these charming images can be appreciated in a way they might not have been originally.
The fragments include a procession of monkeys, birds, a windmill, fish and the famous image of a wren attacking a spider.
