The imposing Roman Catholic Cathedral
of St John The Baptist stands at one of the highest points in Norwich.
A superb feast of architecture, building work on the cathedral started
in 1882 and was the inspiration of Henry Fitzalan Howard, the 15th
Duke of Norfolk.
The architects were George Gilbert Scott Junior
and his brother, John Oldrid Scott.
The cathedral's architecture follows the early
English style of the 13th century, with liberal use of deep grey
Frosterly marble from Durham and is thought of as a fine example
of revival architecture.
Particular mention should be made of the Walsingham
Chapel in the North Transept. The windows tell the story of the
foundation of the shrine, its destruction at the Reformation and
it's re-establishment in 1934.
