    The stained glass windows and painted ceiling patterns are indeed beautiful. 15th century architects and artists knew what they were doing!

  2. What a gorgeous Minster. Love the Rose window and the ceiling :)

  3. Such a beautiful church!
    I especially like their painted ceiling.
    Kinda reminded me of St George’s Hall at Windsor Castle.

      Over the years many these building fell into decay and then were restored to their former glory and the buildings are now maintained.

      I love stained glass windows. Some of the windows are old and original and some are new and together they tell a story of love and witness.
