The next day we went to explore a little and of course I had to visit the cathedral....this is a super old one, started In 680 and then worked on, expanded and repaired right up to 1855.
This was part of an old cathedral and this is all that is left
Love this door, great shape,
Cathedral from the river
Part of the ruined wall outside
This window was made to remember the people who went to war, was in a little side chapel
One of the sides of the cathedral
Most amazing roof
Chapel in the crypt
Looking from the back of the cathedral to the front,
Another part of wall out the back of the cathedral
Lovely houses out the back
Gate out to the street
Looking from the bridge to the Cathedral, I am on my way to feed the parking meter...do not want the £70 fine for being late......is raining a bit but I think the worst has gone by
After sorting the parking meter I decided to walk along the river opposite the Cathedral..DH had gone off with a friend to play war games so had 4 hours to fill in
Came across some barges by the river
Weather is so much better now, even had to take off the rain coat as I was getting hot!!
Came to the lock for the barges to pass through
Love this sign
Love too how you look up from walking (I have to watch where I walk as I do not want to trip over a cobble stone or edging!!)
The Cathedral looks beautiful in the late afternoon sun
Spied some great buildings on the way back to the car
Imagine how old this is??
Last shot of the Main entrance to the Cathedral. I have had a great wandering exploring day. See you later.
