Nave Ceiling

Above your head is the unique wooden nave ceiling. This was made in the 1530s from Welsh oak and is a carved masterpiece. 

With its rich decoration, it is the only cathedral ceiling of its kind in Britain. It mostly consists of oak panels, below which hang twenty-two ornate carved pendants, each 1.5 metres in height and just over 1 metre wide. The sides and corners of the nave roof are also adorned with half- and quarter-pendants.
