Capture the Cathedral: The People's Choice 2014

A selection of entries from the Capture the Cathedral competition have been on display in the Cathedral for the past month.

However, during the exhibition, that is what we asked the members of the public to do and over 340 people voted.

We are pleased to announce that the winner of the 'The People's Choice' is Dave Murray with his photograph 'The Doorway'.
