We entered into the cathedral through the little door on the right of the main door from the west side.
There is a pile of what looks like creepers. Not sure what this is all about.
A seriously ornate tomb of Thomas Lord Wyndham who died 24/11/1745. There is a vase, couple of statues, couple of plaques and a whole bio carved into the plaque on the front. Very interesting olde english being used.
This is the oldest working clock in the world, made around 1396. No face, but it struck the hour on a bell. The clock runs on the basis of these round stone weights hung on the ropes. Fascinating stuff.
There are these ancient war banners of the Wiltshire Regiment. Quite a range of campaigns which are noted on the plaques below each. The one on the left was destroyed on the Ganges in 1847 due to fire. The next one down was presented by the Indian Viceroy at Bangalore in 1939. Many other regiments were amalgamated into this regiment.
Brave men served underneath these colours. Salutations.
Another plaque commemorating the people from the Wiltshire Regiment who died in the South African Campaign 1899-1902. The Second Boer War. Sad state, this is the war which gave rise to Concentration Camps and scorched earth. Not the finest hour for the British, I am afraid.
Coming to the centre of the church.
