Towering pillars

Today’s image shows the magnificent interior and towering pillars of Gorton Monastery near Manchester.  It was designed by Edward Pugin (son of Augustus Pugin who worked alongside Charles Barry on the creation of the Palace of Westminster).  Gorton is a stunning building – I love the sense of height and grandeur, the feeling of space, and the way the light floods in.
