Lion Cosmetic Surgery Update

During lockdown we managed to arrange to have the damaged lion from the cloisters, retrieved from its location for many years leaning against a wall in one of the chapels,and sent off for repair. A few images of the repairs to the base and also the damaged jaw. Post-lockdown the plinth in the cloisters is to be repaired and the lion reinstated.
