Adopt a Stone a gift to last a life time

The Adopt a Stone programme was born out of the success of ‘Custodian of a Statue’, which was launched in line with the West Front Appeal of recent years. Adopt a Stone gives a point of accessibility for all and a chance for everyone, young or old, to share in our majestic building – Adopt a Stone is a simple way to preserve a piece of history for yourself or your friends or family.

You can come to the Cathedral Shop or Office and choose one of our six attractive greeting card adoption packs. We have packs for Christmas, Birthday, Mothering Sunday, Graduation, Memoriam and General Greeting.

Each adoption pack contains the following:

  • An adoption certificate with an unique reference number relating to a stone on the West Front of the Cathedral.
  • A map of the West Front section showing the exact position of the adopted stone.
  • A registration card for the recipient to complete and return, so that the stone adoption can be recorded in the Cathedrals Permanent Archive.

The stones are blocks, shaped or carved. Prices range from 25 to 100. Shaped and carved stones can only be purchased by contacting the Cathedral Office either by ringing 01733 355315 or emailing trust
