A cathedral in Nottinghamshire will be brought into the 21st Century with a grant to fund hi-tech photography of some of its buildings.
Southwell Minster will receive £20,000 from English Heritage to use photographs to create stone by stone drawings of the central tower.
The drawings will show exactly how the tower is made up, in preparation for major repair and restoration work.
The planned repairs to the cathedral will include masonry and glazing work.
Cathedral administrator, Caroline Jarvis said: "The grant will pave the way for the significant repairs needed for our central tower and will help us to continue to be good custodians of our cathedral."
The most famous part of the building is the octagonal Chapter House which has no central pier, taking the load on massive stone buttresses.
Lincoln Cathedral is also in line for an English Heritage grant of £100,000.
The money will go towards masonry repairs and the renewal of lead roofs and rainwater pipes around the cathedral's northwest transept.
