Waters are drying up, indeed.

It costs £3,500 a day to keep the cathedral running, but the average visitor donates just 35p. 

 

They also talk about Cathedrals that charge for admission. Are they talking about tourism, or actual door fees?

I think they are talking about tourism. I don't think cathedrals operate 'normal' weekly services and even if they did, I can't see them raising much that way with numbers of churchgoers the way they are. 

I was in Exeter in August/September last year and the cathedral there charges an admission fee (no I didn't go in, I had to walk past the door to get where I was going :upsidedown:) but I don't think they are making much. The whole place seemed to be held together with scaffolding outside.
