Internal squint at Holy Trinity, York

Internal squints made it possible for priests to synchronize services in side chapels with those at the High Altar. They were also used by churchgoers to view the events happening in the areas of the church they could not enter – such as the chancel which was reserved for the choir and members of the church leading the services.
