View of the Choir of the Cathedral [at Norwich]
Engraver: Sanders, John
View of the choir stalls of Norwich cathedral, designed for the use of the Benedictine monks housed there. Some of the misericords (ledges under the wooden seats for choristers to lean on) have interesting and amusing carvings. The cathedral in Norwich was not established until the early 12th century because the Bishop's See, previously at Thetford, was moved to Norwich in AD1094. Much of the old Romanesque cathedral remains although these choirs stalls are very highly decorated in the later Gothic style.
