Today we were again joined by the great Janet Jeacock, who traveled with us by coach to the American Cemetery in Cambridge and then on to the Ely Cathedral, where she served as guide for the tours. Ely Cathedral is a magnificent structure, and its history is indeed rich. I enjoyed journeying with the students through the tower and onto the roof of the church, with a local guide, of course. Following the tour we remained for EvenSong, where the church graciously provided special seating for the Lee group near the altar. It was a lovely service, even if I began to feel a bit under-the-weather. I'll post some images here soon!
In the meantime, here's a link to the Cathedral's website: http://www.elycathedral.org/history-heritage/the-story-of-ely-cathedral
