Lawrence Edmonds has travelled over 5,000 miles in a quest to lick every Anglican cathedral in Britain.

Edmonds undertook the mission following a bet with his flatmate Adam Drury, if he succeeds then Drury will be required to run naked outside York Minster in the middle of winter as a forfeit.

"Not only is Lichfield Cathedral quite tasty: it is also an incredibly attractive building," Edmonds commented in a blog he has kept of his adventures. Among the other cathedrals he's licked are Gloucester Cathedral and Coventry Cathedral which he described as "exuding an atmosphere of forgiveness."

"When Lawrence Edmonds agreed to a bet to lick every Anglican cathedral in the UK, he had little idea of what taste to expect."

I wonder what else he likes to lick.

I don't know how he can even afford to do all this. Must be something that only someone with too much money and time can come up with. And, Thepeak12, your such a naughty girl...

I wonder if he feels religion has left a bad taste in his mouth.

That is plain sick to me. What type of germs can you catch doing something like that.? Licking Cathrtdrals little strange but to each their own I guess.
