morning worship from the year 1315, and this is based on a service
from a prayer book of Salisbury Cathedral, called the 'Sarum Rite'."
are making one or two consessions to the modern worshipper by
using the service in English rather than Latin, and the congregation
will be allowed to sit rather than stand."

has stood on the seafront and formed part of the iconic landscape
with its leaning tower."
