Many thanks to Pete from The Quacks of Life (see link right and comment below) for checking out the situation regarding photos of the inside of the cathedral and it appears I can post them on the blog. So here is a selection from Thursday's trip.
No photos though of the Mappa Mundi or Chained Library as none are understandably allowed.
(the balloons may have been connected to a school leavers' event later that day)
Tomb of Sir Richard Pembridge who was one of the earliest Knights of the Garter
The font dates from around 1150 according to the walkaround guide and it mentions in the Hereford Cathedral guide book that it is "surrounded by carvings of the apostles". The carvings were defaced during the Reformation
Photos from the South Transept
The tapestries were woven in Namibia and represent 3 biblical trees - The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, The Tree of the Cross and the Tree of Life according to the Guidebook
A German altarpiece
Elizabethan Denton Tomb
Photos taken in the aisles and remaining Transepts.
Some stone carvings
Lady Chapel - this was beautiful especially the stained glass windows
The Stanbury Chapel (incredibly beautiful stone carvings)
A couple of cropped photos of stained glass windows - I still haven't got the hang of taking these - need to reread the camera manual I think.
