Rochester Cathedral

Restoration by Sir George Gilbert Scott

Beginning 1872


"The picture above shows the quire, with its blend of Gundulf's original enclosed design, early thirteenth-century rebuilding, fourteenth-century wall decoration and furnishings and nineteenth-century restoration: this is the geographical, historical and spiritual centre of the Cathedral. Above the Crossing, with its wooden roof painted in 1840, is the bell chamber." — Cathedral site (see below)
