Southwell Minster is set to celebrate its 140th anniversary of becoming a cathedral with a free exhibition.
From February, the Church of England cathedral for Nottinghamshire will show 140 objects over ten months to explore over 1,000 years of its history.
The minster was built on the site of a Roman Villa, and its archbishop's palace hosted both Cardinal Wolsey and Charles I.
Mason marks from the first stonemasons who made the cathedral, hidden pigs in the Chapter House, medieval pottery and glass, a seal from the Pope, chalices and wooden mice are amongst the items being showcased. February will have 14 items on display.
The idea of the exhibition was inspired by Macgregor's A History of the World in 100 Objects.
Visitor and volunteer services officer, Sarah Clemson, told Premier: "Around 100,000 people visit our cathedral, gardens and palace every year and we want many more people to visit and know that we are their cathedral. We are tucked away in a rural, delightful town so people can make a day of it and soak in the lovely aspect."
Visitors will be able to follow the object trail with a Hunt The Letter game for children.
Clemson continued: "We want to grow our community by showing people that this is their cathedral and they can be part of our story. Our current community feel very proud of the minster and they are pleased that we are showcasing all of our stories."
