Lichfield Cathedral 2

Hi folks,
Continuing on with our tour we enter through the West Front door.

and greeted by the High Altar beyond the Screen and the Quire. the windows beyond the Altar in the Lady Chapel are at present being restored and are due to be returned next year.

The Shrine of St Chad which is sited behind the High Altar.

Looking through the screen towards the high altar.

The south and north Choir stalls and the screen behind.

Window in the South Transept and the steps leading to the road with military memorials and books of remembrance of both World Wars below the window. This is the largest window in the Cathedral of Christ in Glory and the spread of the church by Kempe.

Medieval paintings still adorn the walls.

Magnificent tiled floor leading to the High Altar.

Next is the Chapter House.
Hope you enjoyed this splendid Cathedral. Mike
