Designed, drawn and printed by Rena Gardiner. Following on from History at Salisbury Cathedral (1967) this is another carefully researched and beautifully executed guide. 'In 1971 the Abbey celebrated the 850th anniversary of its consecration.' One of the illustrations records the less happy event of the spire's collapse in a gale at Easter 1559. The larger format of this new edition has allowed a complete revision with new illustrations including ceiling bosses and some additional text.

Price: £35.00
