Embroided history in Exeter

exeterWhenever you are in the sout-west of England, go visit the cathedral of Exeter. There are many reasons: a beautiful interior and some inspiring chapels that display artistic and spiritual contributions of visitors. But also because of an embroided bench along the sidewalls of the entire Cathedral. From the early days untill recent times: every event of Exeter history is depicted on it. A modern tapestry that functions in the same way the old ones did: telling a story. And the best part is that it was made by the women of the city itself. Professional aid is not always necessary. Sometimes it just takes active citizens that can spare some time to materialize collective memories.
