IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT Cathedral Development Project

Posted on: December 16th, 2019

We would like to announce that we have appointed Historic Property Restoration Ltd as our construction contractor for The National Lottery Heritage Fund project, Common Ground in Sacred Space.

Building work at the Cathedral will commence on Monday 13 January 2020.

From this date onwards, and until further notice, there will be no access to the Cathedral Nave nor will access via any of the Cathedral’s west end entrances (north doors/porch, west doors or south west doors/porch) be permitted.

The Cathedral’s car park at the eastern end will also close and be out of bounds from this date onwards.

The east end of the Cathedral will remain open with access via the courtyard. Services will continue to take place in the Quire and St George’s Chapel.

Further announcements will be made early in the New Year. Plans are subject to change and we will keep you notified as soon as possible.

All announcements relating to our heritage project will be made primarily via email. If you may be affected by the changes occurring at Newcastle Cathedral and wish to receive these email updates, please sign up at:
