THURSDAY 26th September Car Section Tour of Southwell Minster and State Chamber

Southwell Minster was founded in Saxon
Times and rebuilt by the Normans as an independent church in the Diocese of York. The
Norman nave is one of the finest in Europe
and other features include the magnificent
Angel Window and the world renowned Chapter House stone carvings “The Leaves of
Southwell”.
Our guided tour of the Minster will last approximately 75 minutes and will be followed by a tour of the State Chamber dating from the
14th Century. Refreshments will be served in the refectory at the end of our tour.
Southwell is a picturesque small town offering a selection of independent shops,
friendly pubs, cafes and restaurants with a small market on Thursdays and is well
worth a full days visit. Southwell Workhouse, a National Trust site is also close by.
