I am searching for high resolution photos of one of great helmets featured on an effigy mounted on the outside wall of the Wells Cathedral (circa AD1250.) If anyone could help in this regard I would be most grateful.

As stated in another place "The great helm has a single broad eye-slit reinforced at the edges by an additional piece of metal which also runs down the front of the helmet."

Thank you

Boris

Those are about the best available online. The statues (not funerary effigies) are rather high up on the sides of the buttresses of the west front towers. To get a better shot will require a really good telephoto lens, or a scaffold and lots of legal permits.
