Norwich Cathedral's two-storey Cloister was designed to house a community of approximately 100 monks and was central to the monastic buildings of the Benedictine priory. The Cloister was rebuilt in the period between 1297 and circa 1350 following its destruction in the 1272 riots, and, like the Cathedral, it contains a selection of medieval roof bosses in the ceiling arches.(2 images of bosses posted in workshop).
To commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Her Majesty The Queen, the labyrinth was laid in the Cloister garth in 2002.
The Cloister moved into a new era on 04 November 2012 when a new lighting system was switched on.
Part of a three year project for the Dean and Chapter, the occasion marked the first time the Cloister had received permanent lighting. As well as enhancing the many features of the Cloister, the new, skillfully-designed lighting will mean visitors will be able to enjoy this pathway through to the Cathedral during the winter months and on late summer evenings when events are taking place.

Très belle mise en image de ces arcades à croisées d'ogives.
De plus, les fresques murales sont très belles.

Hello Marion, very nice image here. I like the shadow/light theme here. Nice coat of arms on these ancient walls. The gallery seems endless from this angle. Good take.
