My Favourite Face

South Face, Norwich Cathedral: 15 Oct 2021

Symmetry, another title achieved from the list provided for #2021picoftheweek provided by Maria Antonia.

This isn’t the face of the cathedral most visitors see. They arrive from Tombland via the west gate, to the applause of clicking cameras. The west face is very ornate and gothic.

This is the south face, part of the original build, and Byzantium (Romanesque) in design
