Event Details

Have you ever wondered what’s down in the crypt at Discover DeCrypt?

Normally closed to the public due to the steep and difficult access, now is your chance to have an up close and personal peek at one of Gloucester’s hidden spaces.  The crypt has a fascinating history: once much more extensive than the currently accessible area, it was largely filled in during Victorian times, when the vaulted ceiling was remade. It has served as a tavern, a store for Civil War timber and munitions, a workshop for 19thc artisans and of course a repository for the dead. Find out more of its long and varied history in this video tour.
