We have been in over the years to look round, also been to church service there with the family in the past. I didn't ask the price but at £5 I'll go in again if only to look for the cross and ask is the other cross made of a resin or wood.

If that's all you want to know for now then I'll save you a fiver Dougie! Wink Yes, the cross on display in the ruins is a resin replica, placed there in 1964 to stand in for the original, which went on a world peace tour, then on its return was stored safely in St. Michael's Hall beneath the new cathedral.
