On Thursday 18th August 1994, I spent a day looking at traces in the clerestory of the presbytery of Rochester Cathedral, both on the ribs and the decorative arcading/window jambs. I used my unaided eye, a x8 hand illuminated magnifying lens and pocket torch in my investigation. I had the use of two tower scaffolds (mobile), that enabled me to view the ribs at their highest point (the crossing), and mid way along their length. By using a plastic crate i was able to view the area of rib immediately above its springing.
