Underneath the Arches

St Albans Cathedral underwent major restoration in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The choir stalls above were replaced, but are still surrounded by Norman arches. The statues in the 15th century Wallingford screen below were also replaced, since the originals were destroyed during the dissolution of the monasteries. Although the experts may quibble, the end result of the restoration is very impressive.
