Brass rubbing/Magna Carta in Salisbury?

I was wondering if it was still possible to do brass rubbings at the cathedral in Salisbury and if there is a copy of the Magna Carta located in the Charter House next door. I thought I read this someplace - anyone know?

I was in Salisbury last October. Not sure about the brass rubbings, but Magna Carta is there.

I visited Salisbury in 1980. If I remember correctly, there are four copies of Magna Carta and one is there.

The Cathedral has a Brass Rubbing Center
but I think it is only open in the summer months till around mid-Sept. We were there in Sept 97 and got a couple of Rubbings that we had framed.

I haven't done brass rubbing in Salsbury, but did do one in Cambridge. Generally, you can't do them at the actual sites, but they have been reproduced in the brass rubbing centers. It is fun and unique. However, it does take a long time. I did a very small one that took a couple of hours. One person who chose to do a life size one was probably there all day.

Why does it take a long time?

Since the original question about brass rubbing has not been fully answered, here is the answer from the cathedral's web site.
"Can I do a brass rubbing?
There are some brasses available but you need to provide your own equipment. Contact the Vestry for a booking on 01722 555150. The Compleat Artist in Crane Street, just up from the Cathedral normally sells the appropriate equipment ring 01722 335928."

It just does - it's a process that involves rubbing the chalk (or whatever it is) over and over the rubbing to get the impression done properly
