Norwich Cathedral

The new Lighting Scheme in Norwich Cathedral is only the third installation since the introduction of electric light.  It will offer sustainability for the next 50 years through the use of new LED technology and lighting control, as well as reducing the carbon footprint by decreasing electricity consumption.

Photographed on behalf of the designers Speirs + Major the images aim to convey the quality of light of the interiors, specifically the warmth, painterly effects on the stonework and the darkness which has been allowed to remain in order to create a beautiful after dark atmosphere.

The aim of the new lighting scheme is to achieve ‘unselfconscious’ lighting, to enhance or complement the objects of liturgical significance and improve and adapt the electrical infrastructure to facilitate concerts and events.  Walking into the Cathedral at dusk is now a wonderful experience and I would recommend this as a great time to visit.
