Ely Cathedral - Mirror image

In the Nave of Ely Cathedral, Cambridgeshire, England, stands a large Mirror -- so that visitors are able to see the beautiful ceiling without straining their necks !

 

Ely Cathedral was recently used as a location in the movies "The other Boleyn girl" and "Elizabeth - the golden age".

 

Built by William the Conqueror as a prominent outpost after the bloody and lengthy rebellion by Hereward he Wake, Ely Cathedral stands as a fine example of William's devotion to his Religion and to his overwhelming victory for the Heart's and Minds of that mixed of all races called the britons... Less well known is that "The Lord Protector", Oliver Cromwell closed the Cathedral for 10 years, due to a falling out with the local (Catholic) Clergy. Cromwell used it as a stable for his Calvary Horses..!
