Discover miniscule embroideries lodged in nooks and crannies around the historic Selby Abbey.

The tiny pieces have been created by Yorkshire-based textile artist, Serena Partridge, artist in residence for Selby Stories.

Serena spent the Winter gaining inspiration from almost a thousand years of history, craftsmanship and stories that surround the Abbey and the generations of people who have worked, volunteered, worshipped and visited.

The tiny hand-stitched embroideries are lodged in discreet places that visitors might not normally look, encouraging you to slow down and discover small details and stories that often go unnoticed in a building of such scale.

This is no traditional art exhibition and the intricate pieces will gradually appear in the Abbey until at least the end of the year as her work evolves. The first piece has now been installed and others will appear from May onwards.

Access is free during normal Abbey opening hours. Please check the Selby Abbey website for opening hours.
