£5 entrance fee![edit]

The cathedral now charges a £5 entrance fee. It is described as a "suggested donation" but to get into the cathedral you have to go past a manned desk, so you'd need a lot of nerve to not pay it.

There is also a large very visible modern newly built extension to the catherdral which spoils the historicalness of the old part. The new extension houses an art gallery, gift shop, and fancy cafe. Lots of clear glass and crome.

All the several entrances into the cathedral have been closed so now you are forced to go through the modern building, past the cafe and gift shop, and the ticket counter.

I wonder how many £5s the modern extension cost to build? The cloister is still open for free.

I'm saddened that the catherdral is being run like a commercial amusement park. It must put off people going there for solice, prayer, or services. If they can afford the large modern extension, they dont need the money.

I would gladly contribute £5 to have the new extension bulldosed and the catherdral preserved as a mediaeval church, not a commercial venture.

If I succeed in becoming very wealthy then I may leave my money to the catherdral on condition that they bulldose the modern extension and never charge an entrance fee ever again. (talk) 19:32, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

If you become very wealthy, hopefully you will be able to employ the services of a will specialist who will tell you that you cannot attach such conditions to a gift or bequest. Kevin McE (talk) 19:03, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Norwich Cathedral[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Norwich Cathedral's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "TB&C":

Reference named "ACT":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 16:40, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
