Three Hundred years since St Paul's was completed it now looks as good as it did in 1711. A fifteen year restoration costing £40 million has finally finished. For the first time in that fifteen years you can now see the cathedral without cranes and scaffolding.
The Reverend Canon Mark Oakley, treasurer of St Paul's, yesterday talked about the mammoth project. The state of the art tecqnics used and the beautiful work restoring the art and mosaics.
To celebrate both the completion of the work and the 3 century anniversary, St Paul's is launching the 300th Anniversary Photograph Competition.
Take your best shot of the exterior of St Paul's. You have until 16 July 2011. Upload your images to St Pauls Flickr.
The ten best images will be displayed in the cathederal crypt. The overall winner will take home a beautiful glass vase made especially for the event by Venice-based firm of Salviati & Co
