Description

An interior view of the south transept at Lincoln Cathedral, looking down towards the Bishop's Eye window. On the facing left side appears the entrance to the rood screen, which is surmounted by an organ. The ceiling is a rib vault. People sit on chairs with kneelers before the rood screen. In the forefront of the image on the facing left side are two pointed arches. The smaller of the two is on the ground floor. The larger arch forms above the smaller.
