Following extensive feedback Winchester Cathedral has decided, with regret, not to go ahead with this concept. There are other priorities that need to be the focus of attention and energy at this time.

Story

Since the public launch of the plan to commission a sculpture of Jane Austen in The Close, the Chapter of Winchester Cathedral has welcomed feedback to the proposal. We have listened carefully and, alongside support and enthusiasm for the project, we have also been fully aware of serious concerns expressed regarding the type of sculpture, the location and the timing of this significant commission.

As a result of this listening, Chapter has decided, with regret, not to go ahead with this concept. There are other priorities within the Cathedral and city that need to be the focus of attention and energy at this time.

We are honoured that an artist of the stature of Martin Jennings has worked with us on this project thus far and we thank him for his support and understanding in this decision.
