Binding the Past to the Present Through Remembrance

Date: 
Friday 26th October 2018 to Sunday 25th November 2018
09:00 - 17:00
Morning Chapel
To commemorate the end of WW1, local artist Suzie Gutteridge and Salisbury Cathedral have secured funding through the Heritage Lottery Fund to bring the Binding the Past to the Present Through Remembrance Exhibition to the Cathedral.
 
Suzie has worked with community groups over a number of months to create this poignant installation is made up of two potent symbols of Remembrance: puttees (lower leg wrappings, worn by soldiers in two World Wars) and red poppies. One hundred puttees will hang, decorated with thousands of hand-crafted poppies as a moving tribute to those who lost their lives in battle. The puttees for this exhibition were made by local firm Fox Brothers & Co Ltd, which is still trading.
