Tales from a Cathedral
A slightly irreverent take on stories and myths that surround the world famous Salisbury Cathedral, its Close and the surrounding area – from the 13th century through to the present day. Some of the stories are hilarious, others sensational, many published for the first time –and most of which are true! With his keen journalist’s eye and novelist’s skill, the late, great Leslie Thomas unearthed some extraordinary goings-on involving a rich cast of characters – the eccentric as well as the famous and the infamous.
Leslie Thomas was one of Britain’s most popular authors for over 40 years. His best known book – The Virgin Soldiers – was made into a very successful film. Further books have been adapted for TV. He has written 30 novels, 3 travel books and 2 biographies. Appointed OBE in 2004 for services to literature, Leslie lived in and near to Salisbury for over 30 years. He died in 2014, his legendary and controversial legacy intact.
