About the event

How we understand historic buildings usually revolves around the visual, typically drawings and printed words, and, of course, the buildings themselves. But buildings are physical things in the landscape, and they typically create spaces that are felt and experienced. This event will allow people to experience a historic building, St Mary-on-the-Hill Church, in a different way, directly through touch. Visitors will have the opportunity to feel the building’s walls, columns, furniture, and monuments; and to appreciate the range of material and textures that tells us about what the building is and how it has developed over time.

Booking for this free event opens at the end of May.  Session times 13:00 & 15:00
