Westminster Abbey, London, England, Twentieth Century Christian Martyrs

Westminster Abbey would rank among the most amazing interior spaces I have ever seen in my life, but guess what? That’s right! No interior pictures allowed! What a gyp! I can only somewhat picture it in my mind. There is just too much to see, so many nooks and crannies. And the history! Both Darwin and Newton are buried here! And Queen Elizabeth I. And a pile of others in Poet’s Corner. And when I came out, the gates were already closed, so I could not even walk around the building’s exterior to get some shots. Instead, I had to snap a few quick pics like this one at the exit and skedaddle. You can see and photograph the abbey from the streets, but it’s so big and there are trees in the way, and when I was there, parts of it were undergoing restoration. I do wonder, however: How can a cathedral, parts of which are said to be a thousand years old, have a collection of statues along one wall of twentieth century Christian martyrs? What was removed to make way for this?
