The Processional Way

The Processional Way replaces a medieval passageway that pilgrims used to pass from the shrine of St Etheldreda to the Lady Chapel. It was dedicated in the year 2000, and is the first substantial addition to the Cathedral since the fifteenth century. The dedication is recorded in a stone slab set in the floor.

The Lady Chapel Passage

This processional way stands on the foundations of the Lady Chapel Passage used by the pilgrims to Ely. Beneath this floor lied the mortal remains of 27 persons from the wider monastic community reinterred during building work.

Lady Chapel Passage Windows

The three, four-light windows and flanking door-panel lights are based on geometric principles, glazed in tints and colours of the 14th century. The symbols are encompassed by decorative borders, foliated motifs and cross-hatching. The painting is traditional in subject matter and format, though contemporary in technique.
