This past weekend we took the family to Norwich, we had been here a month or two ago at the Dragon festival but didn't make it to the Cathedral. Since it was a beautiful spring day we headed back to explore some more of this lovely city.
Norwich Cathedral is over 900 years old and has quite a history. I love the way it has retained its old walls along with more modern architecture. Here we are standing near one of the older entrances
Most of the original stain glass is gone replaced with stain glass of the Victorian age. This magnificent window tells the story of Moses.
The large pipe organ. My son loves looking and listening to cathedral organs and even asked one of the tour guides how many pipes this organ had and if someone could play it for him:). Although they wouldn't play it we did find out this was the third largest pipe organ in England with over 6000 pipes.
One of the many ornate tombs we saw.
Although the cathedral walls are gray now there is one section of the church with these faded paintings on it. It is widely believed that Cathedrals were ornately painted during the medieval times but during the reformation the paintings were removed or covered up.
I love taking pictures of the old wooden door:)
My husband found this interesting sign and skeleton. You never know what you will find in these old cathedrals.
Relaxing and playing on the ground of the cathedral. Everyone was very patient while I took endless pictures with my new camera lens:)
