Walk the perimeter inside the old cathedral and you’ll be rewarded with a stunning view of intricate interior walls and ceilings beyond. (In case you were wondering, the Cathedral opened on April 8, 1093.)

No apprehension here

Mid-morning, and the light coming into the Lady Chapel was lovely.

You can’t even imagine how happy it made me to see this power cord right there on the ancient column. (I am very easily entertained. Apparently.)

Crypt Keeper

This mysterious man stands in the cathedral’s crypt. The sculpture was made by Sir Antony Gormley, who cast it in lead from a plaster model of his own body. During rainy months, when the crypt floods, the statue is standing in water.

A view straight to the top of the nave is an astonishing vision.
