The Sanctuary Within the Sanctuary is a replica of the charred beams which, on the night of the bombing, fell down from the roof and landed in the shape of a cross. A Cathedral worker called Jock Forbes saw them from the top of the Tower and considered their formation to be a divine signal of hope and resurrection. Behind the Charred Cross and the reconstructed Altar are the words " Father Forgive’, written on the East Wall by Provost Richard Howard in 1940. Also to be found in the Sanctuary is the Bishop’s chair made by Robert Thompson.
