Salisbury Cathedral, Restoration

Salisbury Cathedral

Salisbury Cathedral was undergoing restorative work when we visited, but the beautiful day made up for it when it came to taking photographs (this was the same day we visited Mompesson House. It’s a lovely cathedral in itself, but something we were surprised to discover was that it holds a copy of the Magna Carta, making it even more ripe for the budding historian or tourist. Of course I couldn’t take pictures of the document, and the cathedral interior was off limits, but exterior made up for it.

Have you any building/museum visits planned for the lighter days ahead?

They’re beautiful photos Charlie, thank you for sharing. I would really like to go to Salisbury Cathedral. No plans of my own yet.

The whole interior was off-limits? What happened? Are they trying to straighten out the spire a bit? (When we were there our tour guide told us all about the leeeeeaning spire.)

But I’m glad you went anyway! My mum and I did a day trip to Salisbury Cathedral and Stonehenge when we were in England, and we were blown away by both of them. The cathedral was having an art show while we were there, with a few installation pieces scattered around the cathedral grounds, so that was also quite cool.

Belle: Thanks, Belle!

Alice: Part of the idea of posting them now was to brighten the darker days :)

Jessica: You’ll like it a lot :)

Literary Feline: For the Magna Carta I’d definitely put it on a must-see list.

Jenny: Sorry, I should’ve been more clear – off limits photography wise. Some of the cathedral was off limits to tourists, but not much. I’m not actually sure what they were doing; regarding the spire it’d probably depend on if that was a new issue of if it’d been built that way – within reason of course.

Art shows can look beautiful in cathedrals! Glad you were able to see both places. I think Old Sarum’s nearby, too – Salisbury’s great for history in a day.
