    I have a documentary about the building of the cathedral (including footae) and apparently the architect was overseen by a much older and more domineering fellow who superimposed his designs over the originals. Hence the reason for other changes within. The designs were constantly altered during the whole building process.

    You should see those workers building the tower wandering around the outer 'scaffolding' with boots, jackets and caps like there was no drop at all!

    I was bad enough up the top with it all enclosed, I think I'd have just jumped off if it was windy while building it

    Nice one Lindy. Spent many a happy time there. Used to go to the Grotto there too when I was a kid.

    Looks very quiet there. What time did you take that.

    Another good one Lindy. The difference of the Bullring now to how it was has been remarkable. They look fantastic now. Reckon Ged was right about not pulling them buildings down.
