Paving Stones

Much of the medieval cathedral was ‘recycled’ in the construction of Roberts’ new cathedral during the 1770s. The stone walls which lie behind the plasterwork are composed of rubble from the medieval cathedral. The surrounding graveyards were also cleared to create the spacious squares you see today. The headstones that marked those graves were repurposed as paving stones, and if you look carefully at the side aisles you will find some inscriptions and crosses remain visible.
