UK Cathedral to be seen in all its glory soon
Chichester Cathedral will be seen in all its glory – without external scaffolding – for the first time in 40 years in around 18 months' time. This will follow the completion of a major part of the restoration work now under way on the 900-year-old building's magnificent Lady Chapel, costing £870,000.
But it will not mark the end of work elsewhere in the cathedral. And meanwhile, the task ahead is to raise more than £1,000 a week in the coming year and beyond.
Many thousands of people born and brought up in Chichester, as well as many who have moved to the city, will never have seen the cathedral without scaffolding on some part of it.
The restoration programme has been running for 42 years, and financed by the Cathedral Restoration and Development Trust for the past 25.
