The Churches of Britain and Ireland
The Cathedral Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary. From a postcard (franked 1909), in the collection of Mrs. Marion Allen. A modern view, a detail of the statues, and the cloisters. All © Andrew Ross. Another view of the West Front, and a detailed view of part of the West front and the Tower. Both © Roger Hopkins. And an unusual photo - the very top of the spire! © Roger Hopkins. And hats off to these two - wild horses wouldn't get me up there! © Christopher Skottowe (2010), plus more steeplejacking in 1950, also © Christopher Skottowe. The nave, north aisle, south side of the nave, nave vaulting, crossing vaulting, two of the choir - 1, 2, choir vaulting, the triforium and clerestorey, cloisters and chapter house, the junction of the nave and south transept and the tower, chapter house ceiling, the 1386 clock, and a scissor arch, all © Christopher Skottowe (2010, 2013 and 2015). An old postcard view of the cathedral, from Paul E. Barnett's Collection. Link. Grade I listed.

Old Sarum Cathedral. Built soon after the Norman Conquest, it was demolished in the early 13th century, the stone being used to build the present cathedral in Salisbury. SU 1367 3274. © Janet Gimber (2011). An old postcard aerial view, from © Christopher Skottowe's Collection. Link.
St. Edmund of Abingdon on Bedwin Street. A monument records the fall of the tower. Note the quotation "praIse hIM o yee ChILDren". One suggestion I've found is that the capitals are the date of the collapse - MDCLIII, or 1653. Both © Janet Gimber (2011).
St. Elizabeth Hall on Exeter Road is (or was?) the meeting place for The Redeemed Christian Church of God. © Janet Gimber (2011).
St. Francis (R.C.) on Castle Road. © Janet Gimber (2011).
