Half-way there

Paradise lost at Rosslyn Chapel, Midlothian, where Prince Charles was recently taken on a tour of the fifteenth-century building by its architect- conservator, James Simpson. According to legend, the physical gateway to Paradise lies in its vaults, but these have been sealed for the last 350 years. Debate is raging over whether they should be re-opened, but the prince concluded they should not. More Purgatory for him, then.
