Hidden Treasures, Fresh Expressions is a project that focuses on the Crypt, Library and the 'hidden collections' in the Cathedral's ownership. At the very heart of the project is the creation of a secure exhibition space within the medieval crypt for the display of the collections; a wealth of texts, books, documents, charters, stonework, embroidery, plate, paintings and historical artifacts. The library will also be repaired and renovated to house our remarkable collection more appropriately and enable us to make this part of the collection more accessible.
In February 2013 it was announced that we have been awarded £3.55million from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). It was the very welcome final piece of the funding jigsaw and would not have been possible without the generosity of other funders including Colyer-Fergusson, Friends of Rochester Cathedral, Rochester Bridge Trust, Garfield Weston, Wolfson, Headley Trust, Esme Fairbairn and the Henry Smith Charity who between them have committed over £1million to the project.
This year will therefore be challenging as we embark on a programme of construction works to undertake the necessary repairs and modifications to deliver our project. Whilst some areas will be closed during the works we will continue to be open to visitors and services will continue as normal albeit mostly in the Nave.
