A Stunning Setting for Worship

This November our residents went on a minibus trip to St. Alban’s Cathedral in Hertfordshire, which is an incredible site of historic significance. Our residents were intrigued to find out that the cathedral has the longest nave in England, measuring 85 metres long. The cathedral also boasts an 11th century Norman tower built using Roman bricks, the shrine of St. Albans, and a stained glass window that was unveiled by Princess Diana in 1989. Our residents finished off their sightseeing with a delicious lunch at Abbot’s Kitchen, as well as a browse of the gift shop. We are hoping to visit the cathedral again when they are conducting one of their magnificent organ recitals.
