Description

Repair and restoration of Grade 1 listed, Scheduled Ancient Monument and UNESCO World Heritage building, including repair and restoration of the West Towers and Nave and the historic Precinct entrance of Christ Church Gate.

A new Welcome Centre with café and community space is being created, together with improved interpretation, signage, landscaped precincts and enhanced access, Learning, Volunteering and Activity Plan programmes.

The works are being carried out whilst the Cathedral remains open to the public, requiring complex phasing and extensive temporary protection works including crash deck.
