Crypt, Rochester Cathedral, Kent, England by 

Wow my first upload for 3 months and my first photoshoot for 6 months! I thought it was time to do something I enjoy best – Cathedral interiors. I had promised myself that I would visit Rochester Cathedral for a long time and finally I got around to doing it. A few images to follow.

The first is a part of the Crypt which is dedicated to silent prayer and the memory of St Ithamar who was the first Anglo-Saxon Bishop of England and was consecrated at Rochester in the year 644. The Crypt was built by those wonderful Norman builders under Bishop Gundulf and was commenced in 1082. Walking around the Crypt and the Nave gives you a wonderful experience of history and craftsmanship. I am pretty sure my house will not be standing another 900 years from now!

It is a Grade I listed building (Number 173125)
