We recommend all those following the work at the Cathedral to look at the time lapse video shared by the Project – see Project Director Updates – Leicester Cathedral.

The Project Director’s latest report says

The initial phase of archaeological excavation and investigation on the footprint of the Old Song School building is due to be completed just before Christmas.

The updated video from the time lapse camera shows progress over the last couple of months, from demolition of the Old Song School followed by the archaeological work – you can watch it below.

The next stage, from the beginning of January, will involve ground works including installation of a contiguous piled wall that will define the basement of the new visitor and learning centre extension. Within this, further archaeological excavation and investigation can be then be safely undertaken.
