June, 2014 - TRURO, UK

We take a day trip, by train to Truro.  The highlight was the Gothic style Cathedral finished in 1910.

Truo is the largest town in Cornwall and is mentioned frequently in the BBC TV show "Doc Martin", one of our favorite shows.

Built on the site of an 11th century church.

Totally Gothic look.

What if an earthquake hit?

Model of the church.  The lower RH corner is part of the 11th century church.

The cathedral in known for the number and quality of it's stained glass windows.

An accidental discharge of a rifle in WWII broke one of the tiny stained glass panels, in the lower middle window. The replacement panel is bright blue.  Can you see it?
