Hi All,

Moving on from Longleat, another item on the list for last year in Somerset was Salisbury Cathedral (even though it is, technically, across the border in Wiltshire). As everyone knows, it has the tallest single spire on the UK and is another example of fine cathedral architecture. Whilst so close to Wells, it also has a completely different 'feel' to it when one walks around - whether this is due to how each diocese manages the building or part of the fabric itself, but both Julie and I thought it much less 'welcoming' than Wells somehow (possibly more 'formal'?). That said, it is a wonderful place and full of opportunity and small details....

1. Window in the Font



2. The Long View



3. Salisbury Vaulted Crossroads



4. The Gormley Statue



5. Ecclesiastical Figures



6. Carved Angel



7. Carved Angel II



8. Gormley - Closer



9. Choir stall



10. Memorial to Edmund Wyndham Tennant



More to follow in due course. Thanks for looking and comments always welcomed.

Best regards, Neil.

Neil,
Another of Britain's Gothic masterpieces, beautifully presented by you.
Very finely preserved and maintained. Love the photo looking up into the transept, as well as those fine details of the angels.
Looking forward to more, including overall exteriors, including from a distance where the spire is so dominant in the landscape.
TFS.

Hi Joe,

Thanks for the comment but I may have to disappoint you on the 'long view' - the day took on a rather grey mood and a long view would have had a rather bland and unexciting backdrop. Still, it means I can make an excuse to go back in the future!

Thanks and best regards, Neil.

Nice holiday.zapp in these Covid-times.

That series is impressive, Neil!

#2, #6 and #8 are my favorites - there is a lot of diversity and detail in this documentation. The images nevertheless convey a sense of awe - the dimensions of the building come out very well. Although I had a stint at Salisbury (a long time ago) I didn't make it to the cathedral. Thank you for giving me that opportunity to visit via your pictures!
