Westminster Abbey pavement

Following on my post about ecclesiastical flooring yesterday, Delia sent a link to an article at the Westminster Abbey website: Conservation work starts on the Cosmati pavement.

There is a 56m2 area of cosmatesque paving in front to the High Altar which was commissioned by Henry III and is reckoned to be the finest surviving example of cosmatesque pavement north of the Alps.

Looking at the Abbey website reminds me that it is ages since I last visited the Abbey. I must see whether I could call in and attend Evensong on day when I am in central London.
