Tucked away between wharfs, railways arches and wine bars you will find the Cathedral and Collegiate Church of St Saviour and St Mary Overie, London’s oldest Gothic building. It was a sunny day outside, spilling pale light into every crevice of this splendid House.
Southwark is fortunate to have an Early English Retro-Choir. Arguably this area is the prettiest part of the Cathedral, a great feeling of space. It is hard to visualise it used as a pigsty at one stage! And also used as a Bishop’s court for trying heretics at another point in history. I made a drawing of the magnificent screen between the altar and the Retro-Choir, Saints and Bishops adorned in Perpendicular glory. Do seek out Southwark and enjoy the space and peace.
