7.30 pm on Tuesday 6 March in St Peter’s Methodist Church Hall, St Peter’s Street
Heather Newton is Head of Conservation at the Cathedral and has managed some of the most significant recent projects, including the re-building of the Great South Window. We are delighted that she is coming to give a talk about the work currently going on at the Cathedral and about the challenges involved in conserving the fabric of this historic building.
Heather is very much involved in the Canterbury Journey, which represents a major five-year development for the Cathedral. The essential work which is taking place is possible thanks to a Heritage Lottery Fund total grant of £13.8 million and the generosity of trusts and individuals: £250,000 was donated by The Friends of Canterbury Cathedral.
During the course of The Canterbury Journey, the western end of the Cathedral is being restored and enhanced with repairs to the West Towers, Nave Roof and Christ Church Gate. New landscaping is taking place and there will be a new Welcome Centre and a purpose-built Community Space which will host a range of community activities and events.
So do come along on Tuesday 6th March to hear more. Refreshments will be provided. We ask for donations of £3.00 for non-members of the Canterbury Society. You can park by the Westgate or in the Marlowe car park. All very welcome.
