The photograph on the right shows the front of the cathedral's west wall, with the main window looking more like a modern day abstract mosaic as the original glass was shot through by parliamentarian soldiers in the Civil War.
Here's the photographs:
|The North wall with four information stands showing the developement of the building.|
|One of the four information stands|
|Looking down to the east altar and quire and (imho) a ghastly modern 'star'|
|One style of window|
|Another style of window with 'cleaner' lines imo.|
|No caption necessary|
|This was about half the tiles that could be seen (note the modern replacements too)|
|Detail showing the many, wonderful tiles|
|The roof of one of the many chapels in the cathedral|
|Entrance to the crypt (I didn't take the tour)|
|Some of the many flags to be found in the cathedral|
|More flags, British Legion I think|
|Heraldic banner in one of the aisles (there were others)|
|One of th many epitaphs, around the cathedral, that caught my eye...|
|It was the palm tree in particular that drew me to this |
|Lieutenant Turner of the Bengal Native Infantry and commandant of the corps of guides.|
|A good model of the cathedral.|
That's it for this week, I'm keeping the few photographs I have of the Great Hall, in reserve, until next week.
Thanks for taking the time to visit, sorry nothing to report on the hobby front, but I'm still hopeful.
As always your comments are both welcomed and truly appreciated.
