Saint Magnus – Ironwork and Nave

Nancy Rommes

"Construction was begun on this lovely cathedral in the twelfth century. Built of local, rose-colored stone, it commands a good view of the Kirkwall Harbor. It is a simple design – a nave and transept – in the usual shape of a cross. We had permission to explore the entire church, and I discovered this rather secretive window high in the transept. Originally, the ironwork kept the clergy who ventured up here safe from a fall, but later – in deference to the more litigious nature of the twentieth century – a pane of glass was added." - Nancy Rommes
