Take a backstage tour with an expert guide around our Works Yard, one of only nine English Cathedral works yards in the country. Learn how 150 million-year-old blocks of upper Jurassic Limestone weighing up to 5 tonnes are transformed to conserve and restore this remarkable building.

Visit the Drawing Office where conservation is planned and templates for replacement stones are drawn up by our masons.
