“For centuries the spires of Britain’s cathedrals..”

St Annes CathedralAs the BBC have briefly noted here, the Royal Mail’s new collection of stamps feature six cathedrals – including St Anne’s in Belfast on the 48p stamp. However, despite the Royal Mail’s introduction – “For centuries the spires of Britain’s cathedrals have risen above its greatest cities.” – it’s not the external view of the ‘needle in the cathedral’ that’s the main feature depicted but, as you can see in the image, the more traditional interior. The other cathedral interiors chosen were Lichfield, Gloucester, St Davids, Westminster and St Magnus.
