Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

I wonder if any of you are familiar with Ely Cathedral. It really is a beautiful building and so large for such a relatively small city.

When we were approaching Ely by train, the tower of the cathedral appeared long before we reached the station.

Sadly, the weather turned grey and wet before we reached the building but I hope you will still be able to gain an impression of its grand design.

Ely Cathedral, was formally the Cathedral Church of the Holy and Undivided Trinity, before it became an Anglican cathedral. The cathedral has its origins in AD 672 when St Etheldreda built an abbey church. The present building dates back to 1083, and it was granted cathedral status in 1109.

As with most, massive cathedrals, some restoration work was underway but I was still able to photograph parts that were not covered in scaffolding.

Please see the workshop which shows the tall tower and entrance.

Thank you for your interest, Bev :-)
