Exeter Cathedral

Last Monday I had the day off work to meet up with Claire (and Tim, for lunch). We had a lovely afternoon, sitting in the sunshine and chatting.

However I went into the city early, and spent 1/2 hour in the cathedral - a truly stunning building. Exeter Cathedral, properly known as the Cathedral Church of Saint Peter in Exeter, is an Anglican cathedral, and the seat of the Bishop of Exeter, in the city of Exeter, Devon, in South West England. The present building was started in 1112, and complete by about 1400, and has several notable features, including the longest uninterrupted vaulted ceiling in England.

I know that it doesn't mean it, but it sounds as if people regretted that they knew her, not the fact that she had died!
