Ely

By Sally Pudney on 5th November 2017

A beautiful cold sunny morning, with the autumn colours looking spectacular along the road as Graham and I went up to the ‘Art Unequalled’ show at the Maltings in Ely.

Just going in!

My friend, stained glass artist Naomi Brangwyn, was participating, and said she was having a great weekend. She certainly seemed to have a good steady stream of customers while we were there! She had some lovely Christmas pieces in amongst the sea themed ones. I was very taken with the glass mistletoe hanging. To find more about Naomi’s work check out her website at www.naomi-brangwyn.com

It was a very good varied show and we enjoyed looking round. I particularly liked the hand made textiles of Maggie Gibbs, trading as Daisy Dumpling and couldn’t resist a pair of her crochet fingerless gloves made from British wool , merino and silk.

It is impossible to have too many fingerless gloves . . . . ! Maggie comes from Northamptonshire and her website is www.daisydumpling.co.uk

After a nice lunch in the Riverside Restaurant we had a wander round the cathedral – it seemed a shame not to as we were right there, and I haven’t been there for a couple of years. Here are a few photos for you to enjoy . . .

The High Altar

The lantern – it never fails to amaze me!

A close-up of some of the angels painted inside the lantern – the camera was on nearly maximum zoom!

And the lantern from the outside.

 

Graham is carefully positioned to hide a car which was parked at the foot of the cathedral wall. spoiling the view!

The late afternoon sky on the way home was wonderful. The colours, especially once the sun had begun to set, were breath-taking seen across that huge flat Fenland landscape – which is almost all sky.

Hope you’ve had a good weekend, too 🙂
