The current stained glass was installed in 1859 as a memorial to Dr J. H. Monk, Bishop of Gloucester from 1830 to 1856. It was made by the large Newcastle firm of William Wailes, and is signed and dated in the red strip in the bottom left-hand corner of the window.
The Cloister contains some stunning architecture including fan vaulted ceilings and is famous in recent times for being as a location for the Harry Potter films.
The St Andrew’s chapel, adjacent to the South Transept, was re-decorated in the Victorian era and the frescoes are very vibrant.
