The Octagon

You have to lie flat on your back to get this shot….or have a very fancy tripod…I chose to be flat on my back….not the most comfortable position! 🙂

The timber octagon that sits on the tower of the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity at Ely is one of the greatest engineering feats of the Middle Ages. Completed in 1334, it weighs around 400 tons.
