This is England's smallest cathedral, and it's in a Nottinghamshire town. However it is said to contain some of the best stone carvings in the country. A guided tour has been arranged and afterwards time will allow you to explore the Bishops palace and the Saxon remains in the garden. We will then walk down Church Street to the Hearty Goodfellow public house for lunch; this will be closed to the public whilst you enjoy the meals shown. Please make your choice and indicate on the sheet attached. We then travel to the Victorian Workhouse (Nat. Trust. So bring your NT card) an introduction talk will explain the layout of the house, so you can wander at leisure (the guided tour will take too long it's about one and half hours). There is a large vegetable garden for those who prefer the outside, a tea room and the shop will provide all your needs. Then it's back to Sutton. Unfortunately the number is limited to 50, so book early, and do not forget your meal choice and NT card. Coach, tour, talk and lunch all for the price of £40 each.
