"The medieval kitchen of the Bishop's Palace painted just after the Second World War.
The Palace had become a young ladies' seminary.
The presence of a somewhat imperfect grand piano seems to justify my assumption
that this unique chamber had served as a music room." Sir William Russell Flint

Chichester Cathedral, formally known as the Cathedral Church of the Holy Trinity, is the seat of the Anglican Bishop of Chichester.
It is located in Chichester, in West Sussex, England.
It was founded as a cathedral in 1075, when the seat of the bishop was moved from Selsey.
Chichester Cathedral has fine architecture in both the Norman and the Gothic styles, and has been described by the architectural critic Ian Nairn as 'the most typical English Cathedral'.
Despite this, Chichester has two architectural features that are unique among England's medieval cathedrals; a free-standing medieval bell tower (or campanile) and double aisles.
The cathedral contains two rare medieval sculptures, and many modern art works including tapestries, stained glass and sculpture, many of these commissioned by Walter Hussey

A beautiful combination of subtle light, stone work and shadows.
