Lincoln Cathedral: making and remaking

Study Day led by Professor Philip Dixon

Date(s)
6 Oct 2014

Lincoln Cathedral has for forty years had a full team of craftsmen, and has contributed to the training of workers at other cathedrals around the country. The ongoing programme of ‘making and remaking’ at Lincoln serves to inform our understanding not only of this particular building but also medieval architecture more widely.

 

Organised and led by cathedral archaeologist Professor Philip Dixon, this day school is an opportunity to visit the works department and talk to the masons, glaziers and carpenters of the works team, and see their daily work on the cathedral. In the afternoon Professor Dixon will lead a tour of the cathedral to look in detail at areas where the craftsmen’s work can be seen in situ alongside historic material. Please note: the afternoon session may involve stairs, heights, confined spaces and other potential hazards. Participants must take responsibility for their own safety at all times.

 

The BAA is most grateful to Carol Heidschuster, manager of the works department, for generously hosting this study day.

 

The cost of the day will be £20 for members. The event is free for students.

Places are limited to 20, of which up to 10 are reserved for students.
