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.
