‘The Minster is oft taken from its tissue paper to win praise & always gets it. If the Gothic Revival had been half as convincing as your etchings it would have gone deeper into peoples hearts. They be grand towers & sure enough were this the 13th Cent. You would be king’s Mason and I your carpenter.’ Ernest Gimson
