Underneath the arches
Underneath the arches
Part of the six-bay arcade surviving from the medieval monastic infirmary in the precincts of Gloucester Cathedral, a scene little changed over the years - compare Helena Downton's SO8318 : Arches near Gloucester Cathedral and Jeff Buck's SO8318 : The Infirmary Arches at Gloucester Cathedral.
Gloucester Cathedral
The Cathedral originated in 678 or 679 with the foundation of an abbey dedicated to Saint Peter. The foundations of the present church were laid by Abbot Serlo (10721104). LinkExternal link
