New exhibition – ‘Where neither Moth nor Rust doth Corrupt’; An alternative history of Christ Church Cathedral


Running throughout the summer, a new exhibition here at Christ Church brings forgotten cathedral artefacts to light.

In the daily life of the cathedral, the historic archives and cathedral treasures receive regular attention. However, relegated to storage rooms and dusty areas, out of sight and mind, are unused and forgotten artefacts which also reveal something of our history and heritage.

Discover a widow’s mite coin discovered in the cathedral grounds, dating from 100 BC;  a bone needle used for stitching shrouds; a Viking box; photographs of the neighbourhood from the 1870s and a selection of beautiful gothic keys, amongst other items.

For more information please see the exhibition page in the ‘Education’ section of our website.
