We have a beautiful new Christmas card on offer this year. Illustrated by Simon Hayfield, it shows Old Minster, as rebuilt in the later tenth century. We hope you’ll like it as much as we do!

We have kept on our three previous designs, as we know they’re popular. The first of these features a piece of Anglo-Saxon wall painting found during Professor Martin Biddle’s excavations of New Minster and dates to the later 9th century. Our other two designs feature the Anglo-Saxon Cathedral of Old Minster at different stages of its development taken from original watercolours by our illustrator Simon Hayfield.

All cards are A6 in size and are available in packs of 5 at £2.75 per pack (1 design per pack).

The message inside all cards reads: ‘Season’s Greetings’
