"The Work of Angels" Stained Glass Special Interest Tour
Saturday 2nd September
10:00 - 11:30
Description:Wells Cathedral has one of the most substantial collections of Medieval stained glass in England. We offer three different stained glass special interest tours, this one focusing on "The Work of Angels"; highlighting the role of angels shown in the windows through the centuries. Images include barefoot seraphim on wheels, trumpeting resurrection angels, an archangel slaying a dragon and the Annunciation. Please bring binoculars if you can, as some of the images are small and high up. This tour is part of our programme of pre-bookable special interest tours for 2017 which offer an insight into our Cathedral embroideries, stained glass, carvings, gothic architecture and chained library and which are led by our highly trained and enthusiastic Cathedral Guides. Each tour lasts a full hour and a half. Places do need to be pre-booked and maximum tour numbers apply. £10 per person. And if you are interested in taking one of these tours but can't make this date, other dates and themes are available throughout the year. Check out our website for details or call us on 01749 671663.
