This is your chance to get a glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes.
Just about every month one group or another visit the Cathedral Works Department and come away surprised by the range of skills they have witnessed: lead work, stained glass, stone masonry, joinery and conservation. They may be equally encouraged by the range of the ages of those they meet – these are definitely not dying crafts. They are skills employed day after day to conserve the building that has dominated the Lincoln skyline for centuries and with their and your help will continue to do so.
On Saturday 4 August, the Cathedral Works Department on Eastgate is throwing its doors open to members of the public. Tickets will be available on the day (cash only) at £10 for an adult, £5 for under 16’s with family tickets at £25 (2 adults + 2 Children).
If this is not enough, there is one last chance to see the real View from St Hugh from the top of the Turret before the next layers of scaffolding come down.
Visitors will see the restoration work in progress and the new dragon carving and may even think of sponsoring a carving.
Another highlight, though will be the Coronation Crown in the position it will occupy for the coming centuries.
We are charging £25 per person. For these tours, please telephone the Fund Development Office to reserve your place on 01522 561614 or email email@example.com
