Helter Skelter in Norwich Cathedral


A cathedral has installed a 55ft-tall Helter Skelter in its nave so that visitors can enjoy a better view of its ornate roof.

Rev Canon Andy Bryant, of Norwich Cathedral, said “I had the slightly risky thought of ‘I know this is amazing, but actually the ceiling at Norwich Cathedral is every bit as wonderful’.”

However, it hasn’t been welcomed with complete positivity - having been accused of being unprofessional and "poisoning the medicine" a church offers. But the cathedral said it was a creative way to share the story of the Bible.
