An Episcopal View II

Some more photographs taken from the Cathedral tower yesterday. These ones show views of the regions beyond Lancaster, but within the diocese. Above, the city of Lancaster and the river Lune, with Morecambe Bay in the background, and the hazy form of the southern Lake District beyond. It is an execptionally beautiful view. Below, another photo looking across the bay, but this time the hazy form is not hills but buildings. The shipyard in Barrow-in-Furness is clearly visible across the water.

Looking further south, the image below shows the Fylde plain visible over the water. On a clearer day, buildings in Fleetwood and Blackpool (including the famous tower) are clearly visible to the naked eye.

The height of the Cathedral tower, coupled with its hillside location, combine to make this a wonderful viewing point.

No wonder he's smiling: he has the best view in Lancaster!
