The Ely Lantern


My prowess as a photographer during last night's lunar eclipse was not quite equal to capturing the main event. However a somewhat lesser human achievement is here recorded.

Nicely atmospheric...

BTW, slightly "off topic" - I know from your profile that you're the Bursar of Ely Cathedral, but are you also a cleric? My scanty knowledge of Anglican Orders is gleaned from Trollope's excellent tales, so there is a huge amount of room for improvement!

Correction, I was bursar of Ely Cathedral between mid 2001 and mid 2006. (I have amended my profile because, as originally posted, it was misleading.) Your reference to Trollope is an interesting one because, although some of the detail of what goes on has changed as indeed have some aspects of cathedral governance, what Trollope has to say about the people associated with these places remains essentially relevant. If I were to tell you I'm busy with a book on the subject (fiction of course) the word 'busy' would be misleading but this magnum opus is under way. No I am not a cleric. The somewhat colourful nature of my marital past (quite rightly) stood in the way of any such aspirations.

Oooh... maybe I need to re-read the books then!!

(And let us know when the Magnum Opus is due for publication!!)
