Visit to Salisbury Cathedral

Guided Tour of Salisbury Cathedral – Thursday 22 February 2024 11:30 am.

It will be a “guided tour” of the Cathedral and Chapter House (Magna Carta)

The cost will be £7.20 each  The trip is wheelchair friendly and is likely to take an hour.

  • This will be a self-drive trip.
  1. Central Car Park (Mill Stream Approach, Salisbury, SP1 3SL) which is a pay and display car park prices below. It is a 10-minute walk from the car park to the cathedral.

Monday – Saturday
Up to 1 hour: £1.60
Up to 2 hours: £2.90
Up to 3 hours: £4.50
Up to 4 hours: £6.00
Up to 5 hours: £7.20
All day: £9.90

  1. London Road Park & Ride (Salisbury SP1 3HP) If you take the Park and Ride you will need to be on Park & Ride 7 bus which leaves London Road car park at 14 and 44 minutes past the hour. It drops you at New Canal Street near the cinema and the cathedral is a 5-minute walk from there. The journey is supposed to be 7 minutes, but traffic can be busy in Salisbury so to ensure you give yourselves enough time I would suggest getting the 10:44 bus for the 11:30 tour of the cathedral. The cost is £3.00 pp, but it is free if you have a concessionary travel pass.

There is no organised lunch for this trip, Salisbury has many eating places and members are free to make their own arrangements.

If you wish to come on this trip, please advise me soonest. Payment should be made once I  send the successful applicants’ details of how to pay by BACS.

If you have any questions on this trip, please contact Kevin Barter at or 07974 111551

Photography Group DecemberMeeting

The Group met at 10:15 on 10th December with the theme ‘Twilight/Night Photography’.

All 6 people attended.

The group had organised a photoshoot on 24th November to visit the Winchester Christmas Fair. We met up at 15:50 as planned to give us some ‘twilight time’.

Several pictures were taken in challenging light conditions but the session ended because it was very cold – two of us were somewhat warmer after sampling some Gluhwein!

Member’s responses to the theme were asked to include at least 2 pictures from the photoshoot. Overall best picture was John Clarks’s ‘Tree at Winchester Christmas Market’ although the overall standard of the folios was very high.

January’s theme is ‘Close Up’. John Hawke outlined some ideas for this theme that included macro, close cropping to enlarge, and telephoto zoom.
