Interior of Newport Cathedral

Interior of Newport Cathedral

The interior shown in the photograph has the bareness of a monkish refectory or dormitory, not greatly relieved by the handsomely carved font in the centre. It is believed that the nook-shafts of the arch between the nave and the 13th-century chapel are Roman columns brought from Caerleon, and there are other features of archaeological interest. The arch itself is good Norman work.
