Anyone who imagines that female saints tend to be dreamy, impossibly virtuous ladies whose primary claim to fame seems to involve dying for chastity would do well to consider St. Edith of Wilton.


From the very beginning, she sets the customary views of sainthood upon their ear, and continued to do so not only throughout her life but beyond it. More...

Saxon Church of St. Lawrence

Tel: 01225 865797

This charming church, in the centre of Bradford on Avon, dates from approximately AD700. After many different uses and some alteration, it was rediscovered in 1856. The church was purchased from private owners in 1871 and its renovations corrected. It differs from the other Saxon churches in the UK in that the whole building appears to have been erected at one time, with no additions later.

Salisbury Cathedral

The Close, Salisbury, Wiltshire, SP1 2EF
Tel: 01722 555113      E-mail: visitors@salcath.co.uk
Web: www.salisburycathedral.org.uk

Salisbury Cathedral is perhaps Britain's finest example of medieval architecture. Built between 1220 and 1258, the tallest spire in England was added a generation later and can be seen for miles. The surrounding Close is perfectly preserved and is still locked at night. The Chapter House has a unique medieval biblical frieze and an original 1215 Magna Carta. Volunteers offer regular tours of the Cathedral and tower. The Refectory Restaurant and Cathedral Shop are accommodated in a wonderful new glass roofed building with views of the spire soaring above. There are excellent facilities for disabled visitors and everyone is invited to join the daily services.
