This view is from near the main door, on the left, looking back towards the main gateway at the top of the Cathedral Close. You can see here that the cathedral is sitting at the bottom of a small valley.

The cathedral close, part of which can be seen here, is really a very pleasant area and there is even a little walled garden tucked round the north side.

The 14th century main gate, known as Porth y Twr, is the only one remaining out of an original four. The 13th century bell tower is the hexagonal one on the left with the louvred windows.

Parts of the old wall which enclosed the cathedral and the Bishop's Palace can still be seen.

A view from the south-east showing the Lady Chapel at the right-hand end with the Ambulatory and the Holy Trinity Chapel in the next higher section then the Presbytery and Quire behind that. The buttresses along the side wall show up very well in this light.
