The Salisbury Cathedral is an imposing Gothic expression, though it was built, and added to, its main character remains Gothic. The Spire is the tallest in England, and was a later addition to the main Cathedral. The Cathedral was first built around 1220, and there was a town that flourished around it , which was later given a status of a city as it had the Cathedral.
My camera could do no justice to this magnificent structure, I could not capture it in a single frame. I walked around capturing glimpses of its imposing self. The front entrance is closed and visitors enter from the lateral side. The rear side of the Cathedral has a cemetery. This is a living church, and the clergy live around the church, and part of the cloisters.
Walking around it, I found I like the rear view more interesting, The Façade is decorated but is flat, while this part of the Cathedral has forms merging harmoniously.
This photograph, it has intimacy, a comfort that one is not forgotten…
The Priest, in green was walking into the church, when he stopped for an old woman coming in for mass. This photograph to me summed up the spirit of the church itself. Though it is imposing from the outside it is welcoming on the inside… discover the inside of Salisbury Cathedral in my next post
