Salisbury Cathedral: celebrating 800 years
John Hare writes: In the last two presidentials in our newsletter, we were reminded that 2020 was to be a great year for anniversaries, and then that the best laid plans of the Field Club and many others had been upset, leading to the current absence of lectures and organised visits and activities. This was not just a Hampshire concern, and over the border, Salisbury cathedral was unable to celebrate the laying of its foundation stone at what became the height of the lockdown.
For a thorough, informative and beautifully illustrated account of the cathedral see T. Tatton-Brown and John Crook, Salisbury Cathedral: the making of a medieval masterpiece (Scala Press)
