You’ll be pleased to know that the Chichester Cathedral guidebook has recently reappeared in the Cloisters bookshop – but with the paragraph on Bishop Bell’s supposed paedophilia replaced by a longer account of his friendship with Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
I have written to the Chichester Observer mentioning this, since most people won’t know about it. I wonder if it represents the beginning of a change of stance from the Cathedral people; let’s hope so.
With best wishes,
