The Reordering II

While much work was going on at ground level, those with a head for heights were busy working in the upper part of the Cathedral. Fortunately some photographs were taken, and this top image in particular provides a wonderful view of the organ loft and Te Deum window, seen from above. This picture appears to have been taken from a height of about 50 feet.

At a slightly lower level, but still requiring scaffolding, here we see work taking place in the Lady Chapel. Clearly much of the stencilling and decorating work has already been completed.

This job was certainly not for the faint-hearted. The painter at work here is right at the top of the Cathedral, some 70 feet above the floor. The fine ceiling decoration which we enjoy today is thanks to his and his colleagues' efforts.
