Mr Monkey in Southwark Cathedral

"It is a rather great Great Screen"

Mr Monkey left the retrochoir, and set off to explore the north side of the cathedral. He peeked into the chancel to admire the Great Screen, which was built in 1520 by Bishop Fox, though the figures were added after 1905. Mr Monkey admired the window above the screen which, designed by Comper in 1949, shows the Lord in Glory. Because Mr Monkey was visiting just before Easter, all the important statues were covered with purple cloth.
