Bishop Calls Installing Miniature Golf Course in One of England's Oldest Cathedrals 'a Really Serious Mistake'

From Newsweek-

One of the oldest Anglican churches in England is being criticized for installing a miniature golf course to attract more visitors.

Rochester Cathedral in Kent, about 30 miles from London, dates back to 1066, when it replaced an earlier church on the same grounds from the 7th century. It was previously known as Cathedral Church of Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary.

The nine-hole golf course is located in the cathedral's nave, the central space where parishioners are seated, and features a model of a historic bridge at each hole—including the original Roman bridge in Rochester and the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge in Dartford.
