Milton Keynes Tree Cathedral
Instead of stained glass windows the Cathedral has flowers to bring colour. The flowers were daffodils, as it was early Spring, and being on the ground they are supposed to represent the sun shining through the windows and leaving puddles of the light on the floor. We all thought it was very effective and we were quite impressed with the quantity of bulbs that must have been planted!
Daddy thought it was sparse and I thought it a little eerie with there not being many leaves on the trees, but the Cathedral has a very serene atmosphere even being as close to a major grid road as it is. We loved wandering around on the paths and the children loved criss crossing from side to side and pretending that they were part of a wedding party.
The favourite area of the Cathedral was the Chapter House Mound where the children posed for a picture on the steps before taking off to sprint round the mound several times and passing through the hedges at the top. Daddy and I loved hearing them laughing as they hid from us and chased each other and we took in the view of Willen Lake.
We all had a good time at the Tree Cathedral and I'm keeping an eye out for the next service being held there as I think it would be nice to attend an outdoor service.
