Brecon Cathedral, Wales

Hi folks,
This blog I didn't want to do whilst I was away due to the very poor lighting conditions and needed to spend some time on the images at home, I hope you think it was worth the time.

First off was the outside which looked strange for a Cathedral

In fact until 1923 is had been the Parish Church of the community until the newly founded Diocese of Swansea and Brecon. Now for a bit of fun before we go inside, note the dog burying its bone in the bottom right hand of the picture by the bush.

There he is...........

From the Nave looking towards the High Altar.

Cross made from driftwood and cast in bronze and weighs 90 kg. to signify where the rood screen once stood.

Behind the Pulpit is a medieval painting of a bird.

More to follow, thanks for looking. Luv Mike
