Chester Cathedral door

I took some interesting photos in Chester on my last visit. Most of them around a side door to the Cathedral. I seemed to draw a lot of attention and was joined by quite a few other photographers who also started taking photos. I have never seen anyone there before. We are a strange lot!

The paint is a lovely texture, I don't think it has been painted for a very long time and the fretwork on the door, if that is what is called is made of wood and is very beautiful.

The paint here is not peeling, it's just nicely burnt by the sun to a lovely texture.

These little figures along the top of the door are very interesting.

Here is a close-up of the woodwork.

Oh so beautiful. There is nothing in Texas like that.

Ah, Chester Cathedral. That is where St Anselm has his window. (DS1 is called Anselm). Last time we were there we went and asked a verger about it and he kindly gave us a private view...
