Noble Friends,

Today the BBC has a brief story about 3D scanning the 12th century
Southwell Minster in Nottinghamshire, England. The scan project was
prompted by the recent Notre Dame fire:
https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-nottinghamshire-50349931 .

Southwell Minster actually dates to around 956, and still has some
Anglo-Saxon features. The majority of the building is Norman, dating from
1120 on. The minster retains many fine medieval carvings, and is especially
noted for its leaf-motif decorations. It is current the seat of the Bishop
of Southwell and Nottingham.

More about Southwell Minster, including many detail photographs, can be
found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southwell_Minster .

Southwell Minster's own web site has more photos, as well as special
features, in their history section: https://www.southwellminster.org .

Yours Aye,

Mungo Napier, Laird of Mallard Lodge  🦆
