For over 1300 years the Saxon Minster (Church of St. Cuthburga) has been a centre of pilgrimage, prayer and worship. As a Minster in the early days it was a centre of mission, a home for a group of clergy who went out into the surrounding countryside to preach the Gospel. It is famous for its unique chained library as well as the tombs of King Ethelred (the brother of Alfred The Great), John Beaufort, Duke of Somerset and his Duchess (the maternal grandparents of King Henry VII). Today, it's a great tourist attraction with its old Treasury and library housing some wonderful treasures from the past.
