Ptolemy Dean, Surveyor of the Fabric of Westminster Abbey . . .

Ptolemy Dean, Surveyor of the Fabric of Westminster Abbey.  It sounds like a young adult book title, almost, but he really is the 19th Surveyor of the Fabric of Westminster. Who names a child Ptolemy? Parents who are sure their little darling will grow up to be someone interesting!

He’s got plans for Westminster Abbey, too – we might be able to get up into the triforium (the gallery between the arches of the nave arcade and the visible stained glass windows above) soon!

  1. Couldn’t resist telling you that I once knew a young man named Adonis. Cheers to you, and wishes for a happy Christmas; I envy you the snow.
