Exhibition at Derby Cathedral

cathedral picHoly Ground  is a rare chance to see some of the unique collection of historic paintings and prints of Derby donated to the city museum by Alfred E Goodey in the last century.

This loan exhibition is being staged in the Sir Richard Morris Lounge at Derby Cathedral Centre throughout July and August, and concentrates on Derby’s churches and chapels as seen by artists in the mid 19th Century.

Along with data from the 1851 Census of Religious Worship (the only one ever conducted) they give us a fascinating glimpse of life revolving around church and chapel in Victorian England.

The exhibition will open on July 1 and continue until August 31, Monday to Saturday 9am to 5pm, closed on Bank Holiday Monday.
