Lantern Tower


Behind the red brick is the lantern tower of All Saints' Church on Pavement. One of 8 churches noted in Doomesday, a local story has St Cuthbert consecrated Bishop of Lindisfarne in this church in 685AD. The tower was built in the early 15th century and the lantern is still lit from dusk to dawn
