Ely Cathedral Pictorial

Ely Cathedral is probably the most photographed landmark in Ely City. With this in mind and digital photography available to the masses, Ely Online searched Flickr (the online photo application) to see how many photographs had been uploaded of the Cathedral – 2,125 actually.

There were many ‘holiday snaps’ that served their purpose but failed to excite then we came across this simply beautiful photo-set by Andrew Stawarz. Andrew is an amateur photographer from Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk.

We contacted Andrew and he very kindly agreed to allow us to exhibit his photographs on our website.

    “Still half a world away at CU in Boulder,Colorado USA, and still feeling as if I’m in the Cathedral now while on this site…that is just so damn cool!”

    Superb photographs, particularly those in monochrome.

    Although largely secular in outlook, I can still be greatly moved by these images.

    Just thought I’d let you know, that in June of 1956 on the 18th, I was born in Ely, but raised in Denver, Colorado.

    I now live in Boulder, Colorado and attend a university.

    WHEN I first made it back to Ely, Cambs. the local new paper picked up on my story and printed it – “Native returns to find lost relations”.

    Now, I’m half a world away, and the fact I can pull up this site, admire these photos and feel as if I am there now!

    Thank you oh so much…
