    Default Have you seen the mouse in the Anglican Cathedral?!

    I remember going on a tour of the cathedral as a kid and finding the mouse. I was in there at the weekend and started wondering how many other people also know its location.

    Yes but it can't be the same mouse you saw as a kid though can it?

    Someone pointed it out to me once.

    Can't be dead certain exactly where it is though.
    I've sort of got a vague idea.

    It gets pointed out on the guided tours, but I'm going to need to be reminded.

    We're all talking about a carved/forged one Chris.
    We've obviously stumbled on your hobby of chasing rodents around religious buildings LOL!!

    Matt.

    Are you going to tell all now?

    Or do we have to start guessing?
    Is it on a famous statue?

    ". . . the architect of Lord Derby's tomb claimed that no self-respecting church mouse would live there. As a result, he incorporated a mouse into the design of the tomb - it's just under Lord Derby's pillow."

    I thought it was on a tomb .. but I didn't want to say incase I was wrong and made a fool of myself !

    It was in the back of my mind - but I wouldn't have known who was in the tomb.

    Same here, Lindy.

    I knew it had something to do with Lord Derby, but couldn't remember the story.

    Thanks, Chris.

    I saw a kid in there - about 1989, I went back last year for the first time since and it's a fully grown goat now.
