Restoration of Chichester Cathedral's Historic Cloisters

Restoration of Chichester Cathedral's Historic Cloisters...

Picture: Cloisters

The eastern arm of the Cloisters date from around 1400 and they are a unique and important part of the Cathedral's heritage, now housing the Cathedral's Cafe and Shop. 

The Cloisters are badly in need of maintenance work, including essential repairs to the roof and windows.  The project, which is already underway, is being funded by the Chichester Cathedral Restoration & Development Trust which relies solely on voluntary donations to help preserve the timeless beauty of this famous landmark.

The work is being carried out by CWO (Cathedral Work's Organisation) who are currently in the process of building a substantial scaffold with detailed design features to protect workers against strong wind and rain.  Works will include identifying and replacing rotten timber roof beams on the cloisters and St Faith House and replacing damaged tiles, restoring stonework to the tracery windows and buttressing, and overhauling the leaded light windows and supporting saddle bars.
