Looking at that set of photos, most of the statuary in the aisles seems to be gone, almost as if it were vaporised.. absolutely devastating. Only 2 left seem to be those on the back wall (incidentally, the one on the left is St Mel). In the center it looks as though we have the frame which supported the tapestry, what about that central niche – was the statue removed when the tapestry went up?
The undercroft of the cathedral appears quite comparmentalised, hopefully the section where the altar and pulpit were located has remained intact, does anyone know which section they ended up in?
And as for the west end, not a trace of the organ, except for the frame of the 1982 lower gallery..
the statue is in the crypt, as far as i know , it is of the sacred heart,hopfully it escaped damage, little else did sadly.
