Chichester Cathedral & Parish Church

Chichester Cathedral is a classic Norman building with its round arch windows and west facing twin towers.

The cathedral’s history dates back to 681 when Saint Wilfred brought Christianity to Sussex.

He established a Cathedral in Selsey, near Chichester.

In 1076 work on building the present cathedral was begun.

The stone for the cathedral was initially brought from the Isle of Wight, and then from Normandy in France.

A spire was faintly added in the 15th Century but this collapsed after 400 years, only to be replaced by today’s spire by the Victorians.
