From Inside Southwell Minster

The bronze eagle at Southwell was made in 1503 and was the property of Newstead Abbey.  At some stage it was hidden in a lake but some 250 years later was rediscovered when the lake was drained and acquired by Southwell Minster.  The internal doorway was also very old and really charming.
