Despite several visits to Peel we'd never visited the cathedral before as it's set back from the main part of town. On site parking and it's worth walking through the maze and garden that is being created in front - when finished this will be...More

Our group was given the warmest welcome by The Dean and others. He showed us round the very modest sized cathedral and then took us on an inspirational guide of the gardens that are in progress outside. His enthusiasm was infectious, and his foresight to...More
