winchester cathedral, hants.

winchester cathedral, hants.
view down the nave, with the vaulting added by william de wynford under the auspices of bishop william wykeham, starting early in the 1390s. most of the nave bosses are just foliage, but figures (some phallic) hide in each bay beside the clerestory wall, and the lower aisle vaults have plenty to amuse us.
