BEAUTIFUL ELABORATION OF TIMBER-WORK IN THE HORSESHOE CLOISTERS

BEAUTIFUL ELABORATION OF TIMBER-WORK IN THE HORSESHOE CLOISTERS

From the steps of St. George's Chapel the best view of the Horseshoe Cloisters is obtained. Their shape originates in the fetterlock, a badge of Edward IV, who had them built. They were restored by Sir G. G. Scott. Beyond the north-west corner is the triangular inner face of the summit of the Curfew Tower (top). The balustrade of the chapel steps appears to the right, and to the right again is the entrance to the Cloisters whose exterior we see in the lower photograph. The west end of the magnificent chapel flanks the timbered gateway to the left.
