Ripon Cathedral as Never Seen Before

 Ripon Cathedral has completed its Narthex project in good time for Holy Week. The new internal glass porch and doors mean that light now floods into the West end of the building and the interior of the cathedral can be seen from Kirkgate making it much more welcoming to the approaching pilgrim. Regular worshippers are seeing features of the building they have never noticed before! If you are near enough, come and see for yourself - the effect is stunning! The contractors were Anelays of York, the architect is Oliver Caroe of Caroe Architecture, Cambridge and the artist who designed the etching on the glass panels above the doors is Sally Scott. The panels were executed at Nero Design Studios, London. The etchings depict the life of St Wilfrid. For more photos, reaction and comments visit
