The Cathedral will also be offering a ‘Lights of Heaven‘ tour of its stained glass windows. Other sites with Catholic associations that will be open to the public include the Farmers’ Club in Bury St Edmunds (former townhouse of the recusant Gage family) and Giffords Hall, Stoke-by-Nayland (former home of the recusant Mannock family).
On Saturday 9 September the EACHS’s Secretary, Dr Francis Young, will be leading guided tours of the Bishop’s Palace at Ely, which was a prison for recusants between 1577 and 1597.
