Lawrence Edmonds from York made a bet with his friend to complete the task in two years. If he fails, he faces the forfeit of having to run naked around York Minster.
As of yesterday (October 30), he has licked 60 out of the 64 cathedrals.
The 27-year-old admitted that his challenge is not a glamorous one, as he has to have photographic proof of each lick.
Edmonds recalled to The Daily Mail: "In Rochester, I was on my own and I asked a stranger to take a picture and this crowd gathered."
"It's not the licking I find embarrassing, it's the being caught doing it."
Edmonds added that the church has been really supportive of his choice to lick the cathedrals, and he hopes to make a book about it once he has finished.
He also revealed that Lichfield Cathedral in the Midlands tasted best, while Wakefield tasted revolting and Perth was "a little gritty".
