Over a five hundred years the great medieval cathedrals of England were built.  In terms of resources called upon, space covered, design and craftsmanship employed, this period marks the greatest single architectural achievement in English history.

From Durham to Gloucester the lecture follows the evolution of cathedral building with reference to structural and aesthetic details together with some of the fascinating figures and events behind them – portraits in stone as rich as a great East Window.

Includes lunch. Lunch is served from 1pm and lecture begins at 2pm.
