Original Magna Carta off display for two days

Magna Carta 800th anniversary 2015, Salisbury Cathedral
Posted By : Roz Mitchell Monday 1st February 2016

For today and tomorrow (1-2 February) our original 1215 Magna Carta will not be on display and will be replaced by a high resolution facsimile which was created by Alecto Historial Editions in support of the Cathedral's 'Spire Appeal' in 1992.


This historic parchement is currently undergoing its annual condition assessment - by monitoring it regularly we can help it to survive for many generations to come. 


Magna Carta will be back on permanent display in an interactive exhibition in our Chapter House on Wednesday 3 February.
