Durham Cathedral

What a wonderful building, Can they build like this nowadays? I guess not.
Then the sun shone, and the Cathedral came alive with colour.

Door knocker, tap tap, you may enter, but NO photos allowed!! - Oh bother.
Still I snuck in quick and captured this window.

Wow Mac these are fantastic! The contraband shots are always the best, aren't they? Thanks for being a delinquent for our viewing pleasure. LOL!

It is a bit annoying when they ban photography. Tripods I can understand. Like you, I like to get a sneaky shot when I can.

That's indeed a very special one ! I often think you see one cathedral and you have seen them all, but this one is different, I like the square tower !

I wonder how a person might go about obtaining permission to get inside photographs. As an elder at my own church, I do not see a problem with it, so long as the photographer does not do this during the worship times. Then of course, it would be a distraction, and could be considered irreverent. But so long as important happenings were not being interfered with, a church might see pictures as free publicity and a way to get more parishioners to come in and visit.

That knocker is weird, and seems out of place.

I would have liked to see that one. It is said that it was the model for Nidarosdomen in Trondheim, Norway.
