Ely, Cambridgeshire  – A Picturesque Town

「要在高处瞻望,就得经过螺旋般的梯级,中途会疲惫,会骇怕,但放弃就只让之前的疲惫与骇怕徒费,只有往上爬,当你看见眼前的一切,就不会后悔当初的坚持与努力。」

“To see from the top, you have to go through the spiral of the stairs, perhaps you might feel tired during the climb or you might face the fear of heights, but if you give up, the exhaustion and fear that you have encountered would go down the drain. Only when you continue to move forward, you would never regret making such efforts when you see the astonishing view from the rooftop.”

Ely CathedralEly的教堂(Cathedral)提供崇拜已近1400年。教堂内的西塔,能直通到塔顶。到达塔顶,一共要爬上百多级的梯级。圣圣爱黛达地窖,诺森比亚女王在公元七世纪建设Ely教堂。由早期,它已经吸引了众多的朝圣者。但在1322年中央塔倒塌。所以塔里的梯级十分陈旧,只有被修复的梯级显些崭新。

塔中螺旋般的梯级,只能让一个人移动的空间,非常狭窄。爬着梯级,得小心翼翼的贴着塔墙,尽量踩着梯级较大的面积。战战兢兢的半小时,中途会因为害怕而想退缩,但夹在旅客中,与其让之前的疲惫徒劳,不如硬撑到底。狭窄的塔,让人有被困的感觉,有幽闭恐惧症(Claustrophobia)的人,可能会因此而抓狂。然而,从塔顶展望远处,唯美的风景,密密麻麻的房屋,之前的被困的感觉终算值得。

Ely Cathedral

Ely’s Cathedral offers worship for nearly 1,400 years. You can reach the top of the tower by going through the West Tower of the church. There is a total of more than a hundred steps to reach the top of the tower. The cathedral has its origins in AD 672 when St Etheldreda built an abbey church. From the early days, it has attracted many pilgrims.Unfortunately, the central tower collapsed in 1322.

So most of the stairs of the tower are very old, but we could see some staircases are looking new due to the repair.The spiral-like tower is very narrow and it only can fit a person at a time. Thus, we had to be extra vigilant while climbing up the stairs and were trying to step on the larger area of the staircase.

During that half an hour of hardship, we felt like giving up. However, due to the limited space, we were caught in the middle of the visitors. So, instead of giving up and causing all the efforts completely wasted, we had to endure our fear and exhaustion.

Due to the narrow tower, some people who suffered from claustrophobia might feel trapped. However, once we reached the rooftop of the tower, we felt that it was totally worth the efforts when we saw the beautiful scenery and high-density housing.
