News - Minster launches guide for visitors (Southwell)

HIDDEN carvings and secret treasures will be revealed in a new visitor's guide for Southwell Minster, which is launched next month.

The booklet offers visitors a detailed guide to lead them round the cathedral.

Some of the special features listed in the book include details on stained glass, such as the St Paulinus window and the stunning Angel window, hidden carvings in the Chapter House and on furniture around the Minster, and an ancient Roman mosaic that can be glimpsed between some medieval pews.

Dean of Southwell, the Very Reverend John Guille, said: "I'm very grateful to all the hard work Canon Nigel Coates has put into producing this guide, along with the cathedral visitor committee.
