Da Vinci Code Movie Props Auction at Lincoln Cathedral

From the Press Association today:

Lincoln Cathedral said it plans to sell 43 wall hangings that were used to turn it into Westminster Abbey for the Hollywood film.
The cathedral said it is also selling five statues that it put on display with the 8ft hangings after filming finished.
Westminster Abbey controversially refused to allow stars Tom Hanks and Sir Ian McKellen the chance to act out the final scenes from the adaptation of Dan Brown's bestselling novel. At the time it claimed the book was "theologically unsound".
The proceeds from the latest sale will add to Lincoln Cathedral's coffers. It was reportedly paid £100,000 when it was used as a location for the film in August 2005.
