Chichester Cathedral is seeking support from an English Heritage Fund with a bid to enable new toilets to be built, accessed from inside the Cathedral.
If successful, this external funding will build upon generous pledges made by the Chichester Cathedral Friends and the Restoration and Development Trust to make the project possible. The project is part of the Cathedral’s planning for the future, offering better facilities for our congregation and community, visitors and for those who come to events at the Cathedral.
This proposals would see a re-fit of the existing modern extension off the North Transept which was once home to an electricity substation. As well as new toilets and facilities for the Cathedral’s flower arrangers, it would also see a comprehensive repair of the failing flat roof and the building made good for years to come. Visitors may see notices on display in the Cathedral as part of the preparation process. The new facilities will replace the old ‘Treasury toilets’ off the South West lawn which were removed in early 2020. In the interim, toilets will be made available just off of the Cathedral’s Cloisters.
We look forward very much to being able to offer better and more conveniently sited facilities.
