After the North Transept, we move into the North Quire Aisle. This area is perhaps one of the most interesting areas.
A wooden cross hanging next to the organ pipes
Peeking over into the Presbytery. You can see the organ pipes peeking over the wooden structures.
The walls are full of these ancient plaques and grave stones and memorial notices and and and. For such an ancient structure, that’s what you would expect to see.
George Sydenham, Archdecon of Sarum, Chaplain to King Henry VII and King Henry VIII, died in 1524. The ribs can seen,the chap could have done with a good meal, but presumably this was to show piety and sacrifice.
Peeking into the Presbytery again.
On the top of the North Quire Aisle, we can see this extraordinarily beautiful structure. Not sure what this was for, seats?
This glass prism was kept on a rotating base in a niche in the wall. Extraordinary work.
Another chapel. The tapestry is beautiful.
This tomb reminds me of Bernini’s sculpture in the Vatican which rests directly above St. Peter’s Tomb. See this? This is beautiful, lovely, graceful. I never expected to see something so complex and beautiful in here. Its the tomb of Sir Thomas and Lady Gorges, the tomb was completed in 1635
Next is the Trinity Chapel right at the top.
