Visit to Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church, Needingworth Road, St Ives, and Privileged Visit to the Norris Museum and Library
Thursday 13th September, 2.00 p.m.
For a small market town the Catholic church has a remarkable history, starting life as St Andrew’s church in Cambridge and then moved when it became too small with greater population movement. It has been called ‘Pugin’s Little Gem’. The church is justly proud of its heritage.
After this visit we move to the Norris Museum, for a short talk at 3.00pm on the collections and recent refurbishment by Sarah Russell, the director, followed by tea and group guided tour of the new displays and behind the scenes.
Own transport. Please advise if you can offer help /need help with transport. If you come by car we suggest Darwood’s Pond car park for RC church and then move to Globe Place.
