The most magnificent of the churches we visited in February was Salisbury cathedral. No wonder John Constable painted it 25 times!
This is the North Nave.
I love the ceiling.
And this is the font designed by William Pye and installed in 2008 for the 750th anniversary. It’s at times like this I wish I could take better pictures, but I will keep trying.
This is the window in the North Transept.
Now the cathedral was preparing for a big Magna Carta exhibition later in the year and I was disappointed not to have been there at the right time. However there was this replica on show, and according to the guide I spoke too she can’t tell the replica from the original!
And these are the clasps which held it.
the windows are magnificent throughout, I just love the blues in this one.
This is the tomb of William Longespee 1226, the first person to be buried in the cathedral. He was half brother to King John and advised him during the drawing up of the Magna Carta.
Outside there are still cloisters, a lovely place to stroll and think.
