Today I had some business in Chester. Having some spare time I visited the cathedral and found something I managed to miss on my last visit.
This is a great project! The idea is that visitors buy a brick for £1.00 and place it on the model. It is estimated that 350,000 will be needed to complete the model, which might take another three years. When complete it will about two metres tall. The model is designed to split down the middle, so that, as well as aiding construction, visitors will be able to walk through.
There is also an exhibition of sculpture, entitled Ark. This representation of a whale caught my eye.
I always like a bit of stained glass.
