Favourite Cathedral Treasures

Competition launched to find Britain’s favourite #CathedralTreasure on #HeritageTreasures Day

Voting has now finished. We’re counting the votes and we’ll know soon what the favourite treasure is. Stay tuned to find out. 

The Lichfield Angel, Gloucester Cathedral’s cloisters, the Prior’s Door at Ely, Wells’ Astronomical Clock, Canterbury’s portable sundial, Peterborough’s nave ceiling, Southwell’s Leaves, the Winchester Bible, Christchurch’s Shrine of St Frideswide, and Derby’s Bakewell screen … what was your favourite?

See them ALL below.

Today we mark the end of our #CathedralTreasures campaign with the launch of a competition to find your favourite cathedral treasure from the top ten favourites from our winter campaign.

The AEC’s #CathedralTreasures campaign was based on the latest volume by Janet Gough, OBE, author, lecturer and advisor on historic churches and cathedrals, which tells the story of the treasures from 44 Church of England cathedrals and six cathedrals from the Church in Wales. We shared one treasure every day for 50 days across our social media platforms.

The competition to find Britain’s favourite cathedral treasure coincides with Heritage Fund’s #HeritageTreasures Day.

Ten treasures have made it to the final – determined by the number of likes, shares, and engagements throughout the 50-day campaign. Participants must choose just one and leave their name and email address to be in with the chance to win one of three copies of Janet’s book chosen in a random draw at the end of the competition next month.
