AboutCome and visit 'The Cathedral that Moved', a mini exhibition of treasures and historic items from our library and archive collection. Some of the documents date back to when the 'old' Cathedral was still in place, helping to demonstrate what life would have been like when the Cathedral moved to its current location. Multimedia displays also form part of the exhibition, including an animation telling the story of why the Cathedral moved from Old Sarum 800 years ago and how it came to be where it is today.
All the items and documents have been handpicked by our archivist, Emily Naish, and are on display in the North Transept. The exhibit features items such as The Register of St Osmund, which contains a copy of Pope Honorius III's 1218 papal bull permitting the move from Old Sarum, and a 19ft scroll itemising what one of the Cathedral's medieval clergy ate in the course of a year!
The exhibition is included in the cost of your entry ticket to the Cathedral (no additional charges).
