Lincoln Cathedral Exterior Tour 10 December 2020
TOUR OF SOUTHWELL MINSTER AND ARCHBISHOP’S PALACE (NG25 0HD)
THURSDAY 21 JULY 2022 – AT 10.30AM
Southwell Minster, the Cathedral of Nottinghamshire, is rich in historical and architectural interest. It provides fine examples of the main styles of architecture, particularly Norman and English. For more than 900 years this sacred place of Christian worship has been opening its doors to visitors, pilgrims and worshippers.
There are several guides available on the above date and tours have been booked for groups of members. The Minster tour takes approximately an hour and a quarter. After a short break, we will be taken to the 14th century Archbishop’s Palace, where we will learn about its rich history and have the opportunity to enjoy its Sensory Garden.
There is a car park across the road from the Minster, on Church Street.
The cost of the tour is £11.50 per person. The Minster has a strict booking procedure and final numbers have to be confirmed by 8 July 2022, in order that the appropriate number of guides may be recruited. Payments are therefore required in advance. To secure a place on the visit, payment should be made, by cheque, no later than 7 July 2022. Your cheques, made payable to Lindsey u3a, will be collected at the June and July General meetings.
The Minster has a Refectory and Shop inside the grounds. Alternatively, you may have the energy to explore Southwell after the visit and seek out its cafes for refreshments.

Objectives of the Group
The group meets to discuss all aspects of architecture and to develop an appreciation of the differing styles of architecture in local towns and villages. We have looked at all styles of building from Roman remains right up to the modern buildings in the University and visited towns from Stamford to Brigg – and all points between!
The Group meets on the 3rd Thursday of the month at various locations around Lincolnshire. Please see programme for venues or contact Luke.
