These stained glass windows in Chichester Cathedral may have different pictures in each one, but apart from that they are similar in every way, in fact doubles!

When I visited my local garden centre, the two brothers above were waiting  to greet me at the door, they are very cute, and for the next month I am sure we will see plenty of the Snowman family in various places.

 

 

Chichester Cathedral



 


Chichester Cathedral was established in 1076, and completed in 1108, and has been added to many times since then. It is a very imposing building, and contains many paintings and sculptures, some of them going back to Norman times. There is also a Chapel of St George,(the memorial chapel of the Royal Sussex Regiment), a Lady Chapel, a Chapel of St. Clement with a memorial to the Royal Air Force, a Chapel of St. Michael (The Sailor’s Chapel) and a Chapel of St. John the Baptist.

Among the many works of art you can see a Stained Glass Window created by the painter Marc Chagall , the Piper Tapestry at the High Altar, some 16th century paintings, a Graham Sutherland original painting depicting Christ appearing to Mary Magdalene on the first Easter morning, and many sculptures.

The Bell Tower is a separate building next to the Cathedral, and is about 600 years old.   There are 8 bells in the tower, and though the building looks a bit damp from the outside, it is still in use, and the bells can be heard all over the town and surrounding countryside.
