Around forty churches were allocated to support designated canons and about six others were held in common for all of the canons while the income from fifteen other parishes used directly for the upkeep of the bishop.

Enjoyed our visit to the lantern of the north. Amazing to think what it would have looked like in its day as it's still very impressive. Date of experience: August 2014.
