Criticism After Church of England Cathedral Erects Helter Skelter in Nave

A Church of England cathedral has come under criticism for erecting a helter skelter inside its nave, with a senior cleric condemning it as “blasphemous” and a “mockery” of God and Christian martyrs who died for their faith.

The 55-foot vintage fairground ride was erected in the nave of the 11th-century Norwich cathedral this week and will remain in use until August 18th, allegedly to give visitors a unique view of the holy structure’s roof and stonework, and costs £2 a ride.

The Very Reverend Jane Hedges, dean of Norwich cathedral, said that the installation was “certainly not a gimmick”, telling the BBC that “it’s fun, but about really serious matters in trying to get people to think about the meaning of life”.
