Cathedral licker nears end of quest

THE man who bet he could lick every cathedral in the country is nearing the end of his quest.

Lawrence Edmonds, from York, was challenged by his friend to complete the task within two years, or face the forfeit of running naked around York Minster.

The 27-year-old, who grew up in Heworth started his quest earlier this year at Norwich Cathedral, and is now approaching the end of the challenge, with 60 of the 64 cathedrals licked.

The English Heritage worker said Lichfield Cathedral in the Midlands tasted best, with the reddened sandstone beautifully warm on the tongue, while Wakefield tasted revolting, and Perth was “a little gritty”.

Because it can be done and very possibly because no one else has done it.
Therefore its a first or thirst perhaps.

Every Anglican cathedral or did have a go at Catholic ones too? There are a clump of other religion's too: perhaps he thought licking them might be a little too orthodox?
