Chichester Cathedral:

Medieval Harmony in the Close?

Step back in time to the early days of Chichester Cathedral to experience how life was in the enclosed and rarified atmosphere of the Close. Learn about the hierarchy and daily routines of the clerics who prayed, chanted and sang their whole lives in the service of God. How were the priests paid? What and where did they eat their meals? Where did the money come from to run the cathedral? What was the difference in the roles played by the Bishop and Dean? The architecture of the Close tells us many stories of what really happened here!
