Exeter

I drifted into Exeter, UK, to bag yet another cathedral. It seems a bit stumpy outside but that’s because the towers are a leftover from the Norman original (1133) .¬† It’s quite spectacular inside, famed for its vaulted ceiling.

The organ looks like a steampunk spaceship (as do many cathedrals). There’s an amazing misericord (lean on seat for the long long services) with an elephant…. from around 1240.¬† ¬†Earliest depiction in the UK of such a mythical beast.

There’s a brilliant ancient door in the cathedral close. Haven’t blogged a door in ages.
