Hexham Abbey and its Secrets
Local people have been cataloguing and recording the Abbey’s enormous number of treasures. Some surprising items have emerged.
For an hour between 4 and 5 p.m. on Saturdays in February and early March, three different speakers will give ten-minute talks about their discoveries and you will be able to examine the objects at close hand. The talks will be in the north transept of the Abbey
The first is on Feb 8th, with our own Richard Bailey commencing with ‘A Present for St. Wilfrid: New Sculptural Evidence’
Hugh Dixon ‘Treasure on Earth – things bright and beautiful’
Chris Britton ‘Look up and Marvel – the Abbey Roof Bosses’
