Hidden Mythical Beasts of Holycross Abbey.

Holycross Abbey.

Stonemad Studios in collaboration with Holycross Abbey tour Guide Group present The Hidden Mythical Beasts in the Cloisters of Holycross Abbey this Culture Night, Friday, Sept 23rd. This event will celebrate the often overlooked carved features of the Medieval Abbey- the hidden mythical beasts. You will be welcomed to the Cloister by one of the Tour Guides of Holycross Abbey in the evening. Inside the Cloister will be a piece of limestone with carved details. There will be stone carving tools on display, little changed since the Master Mason would have carved the intricate adornments. Local stone mason Philip Quinn will be on hand to explain and demonstrate how some of the work was done. Phillip and the guides will also lead a guided walk around the Cloister and the outside of the Abbey, pointing out some of the beautiful carved detail. Other tour guides will lend an air of theatre to the proceedings telling stories and legends of the Abbey and the famous Market held in Holycross every September.
