About this event

Join us for a 30 minute session in our Ancient Library where you will be able to see some of the books in our collection, and learn a little more about them with our Library Guides. This tour is a real treat for bookworms and those interested in history.

The Ancient Library was founded by Dr Miles Mosse in 1595 as a resource for clergy training. There are over 550 books in the Library, mainly printed in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The Library is in a room above the north-west porch, which was designed by Stephen Dykes Bower in 1960, the architect who oversaw the extension of the Cathedral in the twentieth century.
