Part 1

I’m going away for a couple of days tomorrow so thought I’d crack on with my Cathedral pictures.

This beautifully carved canopy belongs to the effigy of Bishop Lloyd and is made out of Alabaster by F.W.Pomeroy, 1856 – 26 May 1924, he was a prolific British sculptor of architectural and monumental works. Anyway it was staggeringly intricate and beautiful.

One of the memorials in the cathedral is a 13th century effigy of an unknown knight, probably a member of the household of Edward 1st.

Another effigy, can’t remember who of though! He looks peaceful.

Lord Collingwood.

More memorials, amazing craftwork to carve marble and stone so realistically.

The ceiling above the font (see part 1), you can see the chain the font hood hangs from.

The brass eagle lectern dates from the early 16th C and is said to be one of the finest of the 45 lecterns of this type in Britain – it is certainly the only pre-Reformation lectern in the north of England.
