Sustainability

Great cathedrals like Winchester will always require maintenance and conservation. Our plans differ, in that they will not simply restore what we already have. Through the renovation of the South Transept, the transformation of the experience for our visitors and the much more varied and interesting ways we will develop for engaging and involving people, we will build a more sustainable future for the Cathedral. Over time, we expect visitor numbers to increase from their current level of 300,000 annually to over 500,000 with a far greater proportion of those visitors viewing the Winchester Bible.
