Spire Anniversary

A  slightly unusual post – it’s 150 years since the spire of the cathedral collapsed and was subseqently replaced.  I arrived today to see a very, very long, rickety looking ladder on the balcony where the peregrines nest, going right up to the weathervane.  It’s held in place with ropes – I’m still glad I won’t be climbing it!  It’s there for the spire to be closely inspected and maintained.  The birds don’t seem at all fazed – they’re used to building works going on around their home over the years.
