Wonderful symmetry
Tom Wilson: It is, isn't it?
I don't usually comment on churches..( hedging my bets ) But this is impressive, what are the balconies for Tom, the rich folks ?
Tom Wilson: I suspect that they are pulpits, Frank - but I've really no idea!
Practically sparkling!!!
Tom Wilson: Well restored!

What a magnificent space it is, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Very simple, too.
Simply magical Tom!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Richard - when are they kicking you out of that comfy hospital bed?

Those wall mounted balconies are intriguing Tom
Tom Wilson: Pulpits, I think, Chris - but I wouldn't swear to it!
It is an impressive space Tom.

I am feeling a bit sad this morning having seen the destruction by fire of the Royal Clarence hotel and some adjoining buildings in the cathedral square in Exeter. Very much a part of my childhood and irreplaceable
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Bill. If communist Poland after WWII could rebuild/restore the entire old city, I imagine that rebuilding the Royal Clarence would not be such a challenge smile But, of course, commercial motives will drive things and there'll be a dreadful block of something or other. Looking at the pictures, it seems that the facade has been preserved, so perhaps the interior can be rebuilt.
The gold is spectacular.
Tom Wilson: It certainly gleams, doesn't it!?
What a beautiful church, complete with balconies, I've never seen that before.
Tom Wilson: They are quite unusual, I think, but I suspect that they serve the purpose of pulpits.
you framed this perfectly Tom...i am very impressed with all of the gold in the sanctuary....petersmile
so clean and beautiful...
