A trip to Blackburn on the train. The cathedral is almost next to the station. It was Monday and Blackburn Museum was closed so we went round the shopping mall, called The Mall. Quite a big place, looks like the mall took out most of Blackburn centre. Nearby is a fine looking old building with the name Technical College next to King Georges Hall which is the musical venue. There is also a modern bus station outside the Mall.
Our final stop was the Cathedral. A building of two parts, one old and the other more modern. It was a beautiful day and the sun was streaming through the coloured stain glass in the lantern above the altar. The side windows are plain glass made with a grain giving an impressionists view of the outside. The walls are hung with modern art depicting sacrifice. Over the altar hangs a huge crown of thorns.
