A truly magnificent building. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable on the history of this beautiful building. It was a busy place when we arrived, there were numerous ladies doing enormous floral arrangements for a funeral that was being held the next day. The pews in the cathedral have only been in existence since the 1960’s as prior to that they had cane chairs! I thought all churches had pews as a standard, so that was news to me. We had a look at a lovely display of embroidered items that the ladies guild have done, such detail, if I lived closer I would join this group as I too love doing the fine embroidery. We then made our way down to the front of the altar, it is so far from the seating. The choir area has tapestry cushions that have to be in the correct order as there is stitched into them a musical piece.
