Winchester Cathedral, Winchester: 25 reviews and 55 photos
Now I am going inside to see how spectacular the inside is!
Well, I can tell you, I was overwhelmed when I saw the long, extremely high, Norman Nave! It was one of those stop still & wow moments!
The Nave is the longest one in a Church in England. They say it's a highlight of the Cathedral, which I agree with, but I think there is more than one highlight in this Cathedral.
I was more taken in with the High Altar and chancel. Behind the Altar, are three tiers high of statues standing admist delicate filigree. It was stunningly beautiful, and I could have stayed here for ages admiring and taking in this delicate piece of work.
The choir stalls were beautifully carved too! In the dark, brown wood, there were Flower's, and many Animal's and Bird's including Dragon's, Owl's, Sheep, monkey's and little men.
So, we will move on in the next tip............
