time capsule 19.09

This week as the stone work project progresses the Dean put a time capsule into a cavity in the wall for future generations to find.

The cavity was discovered as the parapet was repaired and has been created by changes in the building previously that have left a space in the wall.

Having discovered this we have taken the opportunity to put in a time capsule containing various items of news about the Cathedral, about Ripon and also what is happening in the country this year that future generations will know about, for example the birth of Princess Charlotte so they can place this in time when it is opened.

It is rather exciting to think that someone from the future will open that up and be able to read about the Cathedral and what we are doing now.
