On arrival, we looked at one of the notice boards to see that cathedral was almost circular, unlike, the one at MK. We had a job to orientate ourselves. We found the main aisle and as per usual the energies went east to west. We dowsed for the mm line and there it was, but very weak. It resonated to yellow so confirming it was the Mary line we were in. The cathedral was divided into various chapels containing benches with appropriate carvings, e.g. Easter chapel contained bunny rabbits.
In the centre of the cathedral was a circular open area, in the centre of which was a circular dew pond. Also in this area were 2 benches, 1 carved with acorns (symbol of National Trust) and one with Eagles.
The latter was decorated with sticks, flowers and leaves laid out in a crude picture.
Most strange of all was an arrangement of 4 branches, 2 over 4 feet tall, 2 smaller bare ones.The 2 taller branches had leaves impaled on them.
It was all very strange. Had we inadvertently found a ritual site or had some children just been playing around?
We made our way across the main road to St Mary Magdalene's church. This was described in The Sun and The Serpent as being dismal. It was anything but. It is true it has no stained glass windows and no gold leaf glitter, but it is open, light and airy with a truly peaceful atmosphere. The church yard is also tranquil, with lovely views and two very impressive yew trees.
