Exhibitions at Rochester Cathedral

Fragments of History

Throughout 2019 the crypt of Rochester Cathedral will be hosting an exhibition of some of the finest sculptural fragments gathered from around the building over the last 200 years. The Cathedral’s lapidarium collection has grown to include fragments unearthed by the gardeners, discovered during various archaeological or construction works, or even found reused as garden features. Today the collection comprises over 400 stones ranging in date from the 8th to the 19th centuries. It includes two of only four sculptural fragments to be recovered from Anglo-Saxon Rochester and a tufa fragment with a surviving portion of a 12th-century mural. 

The exhibition will also also feature a number of other medieval treasures from its collections and a presentation on recent researches at the cathedral. 

Entry to the exhibition is free and will run until the end of the year. We request that groups of 10 or larger book in advance by contacting the Bookings Co-ordinator on (01634) 810073 or bookings@rochestercathedral.org. More information about group visits can be found here
