|Ely Cathedral - the ship of the fens|
|View out of the west (main) door|
The Lady Chapel (closed for an exhibition today) is very light and airy.
The cathedral is famous for its
wooden octagon tower.
|Jesus and Mary Magdalene|
Like many cathedrals, there is an entry charge but I think this is waived on Sundays. We have free entry as we are on the Burwell parish electoral roll. We also have cards giving us free entry into Cambridge colleges such as Kings as we live within 12 miles.
The statue on the left of Jesus and Mary Magdalene is inside the cathedral.
A walk down through the meadow below the Kings School gives some splendid views of the cathedral. Parking in the car-park below the cathedral is free. I think it is free in other Ely car-parks too.
