22. SALISBURY CATHEDRAL: THE MAKING OF A MEDIEVAL MASTERPIECE

Generously sponsored by

800 years ago this spring, work started on the new Salisbury Cathedral. Tim Tatton-Brown will describe how one of Britain’s greatest cathedrals was built, from digging the foundations in 1219 to the completion of Britain’s tallest spire. Drawing on history, geology and his expertise in architecture, he will show the wider context of the building, situating its development against the background of English politics of successive ages.
