Cathedral Close is the street where the Cathedral is, and the oldest part of the city that survived when the city was destroyed from the fighting between The Children of the Red King. Number 3 Cathedral Square is Ingeldew's Bookstore, where Julia Ingeldew lives, and is the owner of the bookstore. Cathedral Close also leads on Piminy Street. Cathedral Close is an important place in the series. It is where Lyell Bone played the organ at the Cathedral, where Emma Tolly was hypnotized and taken by the Bloors. Every hour, the Cathedral chimes the bells of what time it is.
