This news popped up earlier today and I thought it was pretty sweet. I mean how often do you get to ride an old cathedral in the UK. There’s a couple of churches and cathedrals around the world which have been bought out and turned into parks and it’s always seemed such a rad idea, so why not pop along to Gloucester Cathedral to give the ramps a bit of a shred this week? More info below…
“A skatepark has been set up inside Gloucester Cathedral for this week – and the kids are flocking to the church to enjoy it.
The chairs have been cleared from the nave of the cathedral, one of Britain’s oldest churches, and replaced by ramps, quarter pipes and boxes on which youngsters can practice their skateboard and scooter tricks.
The cathedral is being protected by a temporary wooden floor, and wrapped straw bales.
Cathedral authorities gave the go-ahead to the skatepark earlier this year. It is being run by Christian Skaters UK, who have also staged a similar event inside Malmesbury Abbey for the past seven years.”
