Rochester Cathedral crazy golf course is open

Today a free crazy golf course has opened in an unlikely place.

Rochester Cathedral is home to the most holy, nine hole course in Kent.

The Adventure Golf challenge has been set up in the place of worship's medieval nave.

The theme is bridges and each hole will be accompanied by a different model including a mini Rochester bridge and Dartford Crossing.

It is being paid for by Rochester Bridge Trust, the charity which runs the town's river crossings.

The trust hopes this will encourage young people to learn more about the engineering behind bridges and boost church congregation numbers.
