From on high

This morning a gentleman called at the door with this photograph. It seems to have been taken a few weeks ago, when work was taking place on St Peter's Road, from the top of a crane that is being used to build some appartments nearby. This unusual angle gives a rare sense of the scale of the Cathedral, which dwarfs Cathedral House and the other buildings in the area. The Pastoral Centre, which houses diocesean offices, can just be seen behind the church and presbytery; the cemetery is also visible beyond. The Cathedral Primary School, which was the first building to be constructed on the site, is seen about half way up the picture on the far right hand side. It seems that some of our new neighbours will have a view worth opening the curtains for! For a closer look, click on the image to enlarge it.
