Yeah, yeah, yeah...you've heard the pop song from some years ago, it's the same place... Phew! Glad we got that out of the way...

At age 8, a building this size is surely the equivalent of Mount Everest for a budding rock climber, in its sense of immense importance. The cathedral in Winchester is such a place for me. "8?" I hear you say..."uhh?". Let me enlighten you! It's not that I ... Read the complete review
