Southwell Minster

Church St Southwell Nottinghamshire NG25 0HD

The pretty little town of Southwell, with its charming Georgian houses, is distinguished by its Minster, whose twin towers rise high above their surroundings. The Normans built the Minster in the twelfth century and, although there has been some later tinkering, their design predominates, especially in the dog-tooth decoration around many of the doorways and the bull’s eye windows of the clerestory. Inside, the nave’s Norman stonework ends suddenly at the rood screen with the choir beyond added in the fourteenth century in the Early Gothic style as was the extraordinarily delicate carving in the adjoining Chapter House. The Minster hosts regular organ recitals, musical concerts and art exhibitions.
