Chichester Cathedral

  • Wed 6 July 2022
    12.45pm for 1pm start
  • Chichester Cathedral
  • Leader: John McNeill

Chichester Cathedral is among the least studied of all English medieval great churches. Memorably described by Ian Nairn as ‘a well-worn, well-loved comfortable fireside chair of a cathedral’. Chichester cathedral is essentially a series of rather quirky set pieces woven around an Anglo-Norman core.
