Renewing the Cathedral

Project 2015 - Rediscovering our Heritage

HLF Grant gets us on the move for 2015

A grant of £1.8m for Wakefield Cathedral will pay for the repair of the medieval quire and Edwardian East End. Lighting, underfloor heating and display cases will be installed to enable visitors to view cathedral artefacts. Drama and storytelling events will also encourage more people to visit the cathedral.http://www.yorkshirepost.co.uk/news/main-topics/general-news/hidden-historic-gems-of-yorkshire-are-revealed-1-6870479…
