  The Quire, Hereford Cathedral, Herefordshire, England   Hereford Cathedral.

The 14th century Quire.

There are forty 14th-century misericords in the Quire stalls which show a mixture of mythological beasts, grotesques and everyday events.

The ceiling although vaulted is plain and does not have the same standard of decoration as the nave.
