Chichester Cathedral Awarded Heritage Lottery Funding, Making Unique and Unseen Photographs Available for the First Time...

Fall of Cathedral Spire

A new and exciting project is about to start in Chichester Cathedral's Library.  The Library - a hidden gem high up in the Cathedral's triforium - houses a rare and unseen collection of historic photographs documenting key events in the life of the Cathedral since the late nineteenth century.  Thanks to an award of £50,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund, these valuable and important photographs will be catalogued and digitised, and therefore preserved for future generations.  Crucially, this project will also make the photographs available online - a significant change as the Cathedral Library is reached via a steep spiral staircase and is open only occasionally to the visiting public.
