WW1 Tour and Tea

Fri 13/11/15 2:00 pm

Discover how the Cathedral was involved in the events of the First World War.

Join one of our guides and be taken on a tour which will look at how the Cathedral was involved in the events of the First World War. This year's WW1 tour has two parts - the first half focuses on how the Cathedral was involved in the events of 1915. The second half will be a pilgrimage (129 steps), up the stairs and into the roof space where you will look out over the surrounding landscape and hear about what was happening outside as well as inside.

The tour will address questions such as what does the onslaught of Gallipoli have to do with Hursley? Which building in The Close was used perhaps more than any other? What links does Culver Terrace have with the Cathedral?

Tours will be followed by tea, cake and time to talk and browse the many pictures we
have gathered together.
