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.”

Full Story with photos.

At first I assumed I’d misread the headline…

I’m guessing all cathedrals taste of lichen and pollution!

I wonder if he has developed a taste for old stone and includes a bit in his salad for roughage.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.

Well, it’s good to have a hobby! Hope it doesn’t catch on mind you, sounds especially unhygenic if multiple people do it! (Plus, might even be bad for the building, the Paris authorities had to stop people kissing the tomb of Oscar Wilde because the large amounts of saliva constantly deposited on it from numerous kisses every day were damaging the tomb. Seems a bit unlikely in this case though!)

Perhaps he’s taken a liking to licking lichen?
