The Crypt

The Crypt is the most substantial remnant of St Wulfstan’s Cathedral. The semi-circular end of the crypt reflects the original shape of the main Cathedral above before it was extended in the thirteenth-century. Although the crypt is smaller than when it was built it is still an impressive work of late eleventh-century architecture.*

  1. Oh I don’t remember this crypt!
    Been to way too many churches, I guess. ;)

      This was my first time at Worcester Cathedral. I would like to go again to explore when it is quieter than it was on this visit :-)

    This looks like a wonderful place to visit. I keep meaning to visit Worcester, so I’ll definitely make sure I go to the Cathedral :)

      The Cathedral is well worth a visit. We didn’t get to see the chapter house and the door to the cloister garden was, so I nee to go back for another visit :-)

    The mathematical and engineering skills must have been amazing, way back then.

    It really is impressive, Cherry, and just as I recall it from a few years ago.
