As part of the planning permission process which is run for Cathedrals by The Cathedrals Fabric Commission for England we have to have an archaeologist who has a watching brief on the works. Graham Keevill is our man and he came for his fist visit to the work today.
He came to look at the hole that is being dug through the wall of the crypt, which I showed you last week. Distinct progress has been made by Clinton and his fellow work men. To the left is the state of play last week and now you can see that light has been reached on the other side fo the wall into the Pigeon Parlour - so named for obvious reasons.
A piece of stone showing evidence of one of the many fires that the Cathedral has experienced over the years.
