Cathedral Scaffolding Tours

Cathedral Scaffolding Tours

A unique opportunity to join a Cathedral Guide on a tour of the scaffolding at the east end of the building.

The Cathedral stone masons are undertaking a project to restore the beautiful stonework of the medieval Lady Chapel and this tour will take you behind the scenes of their work. Those  with a head for heights will get unique views of the Cathedral’s roof line and the chance to get up close to stained glass, architectural features and ancient stonework that otherwise could only be admired at a distance from the ground below.
