Fine spring weather graced our visit to Exeter Cathedral, where we met for morning coffee,
followed by a guided tour of the Cathedral, lunch and an afternoon scramble into the roof spaces and North Tower roof.

(This event was originally scheduled for 1 November 2016, but was cancelled in the immediate aftermath of the fire that destroyed the Royal Clarance Hotel.)
