Excellent Day at Salisbury Cathedral

I spent an excellent day recently in the historic city of Salisbury.

I had been invited, along with some other Blue Badge Guides (mostly from London and the South of England), by Salisbury Cathedral, to be given an idea of current developments there.

After the welcomes, we had a talk on some of the artworks which will be displayed in the cathedral over the next few months.

We then had a fascinating visit to the stonemasons` yard, where we were able to see masters at work on the never ending cycle of restoring stonework.

Then it was the Chapter House, where one the few copies of the Magna Carta is housed. The display has been much improved.

We then climbed part of the way up the tower, for a stupendous internal view down the length of the cathedral.

And the visit ended with a cream tea!

Thanks to Salisbury Cathedral for a most interesting and enjoyable day.
