We got up really early, had a long breakfast, then Aaron & I headed for Ely Cathedral.

The west door. Aaron fails to burst into flames as he enters. Which is nice.

The Octagon. Ely does not have a square tower like other cathedrals.

Civil War damage in the Lady Chapel. The Puritans smashed almost all the stained glass and used the statues of the saints as target practice.

Residual Paint. The entire cathedral and all the statues used to be painted like this. What we see now is just the "brickwork and undercoat."
