Stuart Welch will take on the role of Guide Leader and Barbara Buckenham will be the Cathedral’s new Deputy Guide Leader.

Stuart and Barbara are both current guides, Stuart regularly takes both floor and roof tours while Barbara as well as taking tours has become part of the training team, undertaking a session on the History of the Cathedral and Nave.
