Silent Sunday…… Three Spires

10.12

Litchfield Cathedral, Staffordshire

The threes Spires of Litchfield Cathedral make for a dominant landmark on the horizon.  The central Spire is 253ft high whilst the twin spires are a mere 190ft .

The full name for this medieval Cathedral is Saint Chad and Saint Mary.  Its history dates back to 669AD when Saint Chad founded the first building.  It was a wooden structure.  This was replaced by a Norman style building in 1085, and then again 1in 1195 in the Gothic style.

Inside the Cathedral you do enter a peaceful world…..  but history also tells us that this was not always so.  The Cathedral took the full force of aggression against it in the English Civil Wars. 

Today it is once again a very different world that surrounds this dramatic building.

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
