The 13th Century Galilee Porch, Ely Cathedral, Ely, Cambridgeshire, England, Great Britain
Ely Cathedral, Ely, Cambridgeshire.

The west front entrance to Ely Cathedral is through this, the Galilee Porch, which dates from the thirteenth century.

One of the two huge, iron studded, wooden doors can be seen below that wonderful arch. Those doors must be around 20 feet high.

The South door of Ely Cathedral shown from inside the South porch.

Although this door is smaller than the West door it also has a wonderfully ornate arch with some amazing carvings.

The Nave, Ely Cathedral, Ely, Cambridgeshire, England, Great Britain
Ely Cathedral, Ely, Cambridgeshire.

The 248 feet long nave of Ely Cathedral, showing its painted ceiling, seen from just inside the west door looking towards the east end.

On the floor at this point just below the bottom edge of the picture is a 19th century labyrinth and If you walk the labyrinth you will have walked the same distance as the height of the ceiling above.

Ely Cathedral, Ely, Cambridgeshire.

The nave seen from under the Octagon looking towards the west end. Three sides of the Octagon are visible the central one being the archway through to the Nave.

At 537 feet Ely is the fourth longest of the English cathedrals and just 10 feet shorter than the longest (Winchester).
