Cathedrals, a Safe Place to do Risky Things Janet Gough Wednesday 06 May 2020


Lecture cancelled owing to the Coronavirus update. We hope to bring this talk to you at a later date

This talk provides an overview of the Church of England's magnificent 42 cathedrals, jewels in the crown of England's built heritage, some recognised as World Heritage Sites. Beautifully illustrated by Country Life photographer, Paul Barker, in addition to looking at their history and stories, evolving architecture and treasures, the talk considers the role of cathedrals over the centuries and specifically their role today.
