Lawrence, 26, made his 5,000-mile pilgrimage to win a pub bet with a pal.

The 13-month tour took him across the country to cathedrals including Durham, Guildford, Derby, York, Winchester, Chelmsford and Lincoln.

English Heritage worker Lawrence, from London, now plans to carry on licking in Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

He said: “We’ve no idea why the bet was centred on licking cathedrals — it just was. I’ve tasted a lot of new places.”

That's what happens when you drink. Any way, I wish him luck...I suppose.

I'd think once you've tasted stone once..... :w00t: ....but alcohol surely has a way of bringing out the stoopid in folks.

I'm just glad, for his sake, that he wasn't drunk enough to say he'd lick the crosses on top of the cathedrals!  
Sounds like a wonderful sightseeing trip ..   Happy cathedral licking Lawrence :)

I wouldn't say this was done for fame (although 1 minute of fame is a side effect of this stunt), just a stupid bet between friends that was so absurd the loser thought the 'licker' would never go through with. The loser now has to run around naked in the winter.

Sounds like two great friends having a laugh :)

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to show me where the hell Helen of Annoy has been for the past couple of months.
