An interior view looking down the nave towards the choir screen and altar of Lichfield Cathedral. The pulpit can be seen on the facing left side of the image. Center to the image is the choir screen which contains a pointed arched entrance with a steep gable. On each side of the entrance is an arcade of pointed arches. In the spandrels are carved sculptures of saints, which are enclosed in a circle. A view of the fan vaulted ceiling is visible. Pews line the sides of the nave's aisle.
