Heritage

The Cathedral Church of St Nicholas is rich with historical meaning. From the Middle Ages to the present day it is a place where the stories of local people can be found. From the early civic leaders and industrialists to politicians and craftspeople, the cathedral holds the story of the City in its stones and monuments.

Visitors and worshippers alike can enjoy a fulfilling and emotive heritage experience in the Cathedral. There are so many interesting features to be found inside, whether this be in the superlative craftsmanship of the reredos carvings, the modern stained glass above the entrance to the crypt, the earliest piece of medieval glass in St Margaret’s Chapel or the Regimental Colours whose final resting place is the cathedral.
