Cathedral Church of St Barnabas – Nottingham ‘More to Nottingham than just Robin Hood’

The Cathedral Church of St Barnabas is the Cathedral for the Diocese of Nottingham. Built in 1844 and designed by Augustus Welby Pugin, famous for his work in the Houses of Parliament. The Cathedral has seen many reordering’s with the most recent taking place in 1993 to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the Cathedral. This reordering looked to recapture the quintessence of Pugin’s vision, which had been lost over the years. This included the restoring of some of the paint work which had been covered over. One of the most beautiful parts of the Cathedral is the Blessed Sacrament Chapel. Which gives the best example of the work of Pugin; it really gives a glimpse of Pugin’s vision of Catholic Churches. The Cathedral is open every day and you’re more than welcome to pay a visit to the Cathedral whenever you’re in the Nottingham Area. The Cathedral of St Barnabas will show you that there is far more to Nottingham than just Robin Hood.
