Rooftop Tours

As the national Heritage Open Days are taking place many buildings open their doors, allowing the public access to places normally off-limits. The Cathedral is open every day, of course, but there are some no-go areas which are open this weekend. The most obvious example is the Cathedral tower. Small groups are taken up with a guide (by appointment) to enjoy the stunning views over Lancaster and the Bay (see blog entries below).

Given that recent postings have included pictures of these views, it seemed appropriate to include some snaps of the people on tour. It at least gives a sense of the scale of the tower. Those who are really observant may notice that one of the pinnacles is wider than the others (see above, left) - this houses the very narrow staircase leading to the roof.

Don't they look small up there?
