Afternoon: Ely Stained Glass Museum and Cathedral, Tuesday 1st November

November 1, 2022 @ 1:15 pm – 5:00 pm
Ely Cathedral
David Smith

The visit that was cancelled by the Cathedral due to the period of mourning for the Queen’s death has been rearranged for Tuesday 1st November. There are still some places left, if you want to come please contact David Smith ( or phone 001480 350127) as soon as possible, no later than Sunday 2nd October. 

Members who attended Dr Allen’s talk in April will know what treasures the Museum has and how it tells the story of the craft from before the Conquest to the 21st century. Here then is the chance to take up her invitation to a guided visit. Please note, however, that the Museum is in the Triforium, up a spiral staircase of 40 steps. Afterwards we have a guided tour of the cathedral, mindful that whilst many will have visited the cathedral on occasion, they may have missed much of tis magnificent building which an expert guide can point out. Members with energy wanting to make a full day of it may like a visit to the newly-refurbished Ely Museum or consult records in Cambridgeshire Archives (relocated to Ely in 2019) in the morning or simply potter round a charming fenland town.

Own or public transport. Best car park is probably Barton Road.

Meet outside the West Door of the Cathedral at 1.15pm.

Cost £12, or Cathedral tour only (at 3.00pm) £8.00. Please pay in advance by cheque, Bank transfer (contact David for BACS details) or pay, correct money, on the day
