Chichester Cathedral


Chichester Cathedral was established in 1076, and completed in 1108, and has been added to many times since then. It is a very imposing building, and contains many paintings and sculptures, some of them going back to Norman times. There is also a Chapel of St George,(the memorial chapel of the Royal Sussex Regiment), a Lady Chapel, a Chapel of St. Clement with a memorial to the Royal Air Force, a Chapel of St. Michael (The Sailor’s Chapel) and a Chapel of St. John the Baptist.

Among the many works of art you can see a Stained Glass Window created by the painter Marc Chagall , the Piper Tapestry at the High Altar, some 16th century paintings, a Graham Sutherland original painting depicting Christ appearing to Mary Magdalene on the first Easter morning, and many sculptures.

The Bell Tower is a separate building next to the Cathedral, and is about 600 years old.   There are 8 bells in the tower, and though the building looks a bit damp from the outside, it is still in use, and the bells can be heard all over the town and surrounding countryside.

    Very nice Joan. I was only ever in Chichester when I gave up trying to catch the last flight out of Southampton. Must spend a full day there some day.
