The great Nave is, of course, modern, but its design blends harmoniously with the older parts of the building. In the south aisle of the Nave can be seen some of the thirteenth-century arcading.


Nearby is the memorial to the victims of the Marchioness Disaster, when a River Thames pleasure boat sank near to the Cathedral. Prior to the memorial being installed here, this space was occupied by the font, hence the unusual shape of the memorial.
