St. Nicholas Church on The Cross was rebuilt in the 1730's, but a few courses of the medieval church can still be seen, the crypt being ancient. In olden days a delightful custom took place on St. Nicholas Day, the 6th of December, for all the boys of the Cathedral School came in procession to the church to say their prayers, each carrying a wax candles in his hand.
