A big day

St John’s College Librarian, Kathryn McKee, places the Gisburne Bible in the display case

The Gisburne Bible arrived back in Guisborough today for the first time in almost 500 years. It is now in the stunning display case, ready for the official opening of the display by the well-known author, Philippa Gregory, at 10.30am tomorrow.

And we also put up the spectacular embroidered banner that has been made by thirty local members of Guisborough Embroiderers’ Guild to commemorate this year’s 900th anniversary.
