Pulpitum




Bishop Gower undertook extensive works in and around the cathedral during the 14th century, the building of the Bishops Palace is attributed to him.

Inside the cathedral he undertook a major remodelling in many areas. Perhaps one of the finest examples of this construction is the stone screen or pulpitum which divdes the nave from the choir. Inside the pulpitum is skeleton vaulting decorated with murals, it is thought that these are remnants of an earlier screen absorbed by the present one.

Bishop Gower's tomb is housed in the southern section of the pulpitum (see right).
