Latest News

Thursday 21 July 2016

Carlisle Cathedral is delighted to hear that it has been awarded a grant of up to £400,000 to carry out essential repairs to the Cathedral’s nave roof and nave aisle roofs. The grant has been made from the First World War Centenary Cathedral Repairs Fund and will allow the replacement of the deteriorating lead roof which is more than 80 years old. It will also allow the renewal of rain water goods at high level in order to ensure that the building is kept water tight for future generations.

The Dean, the Very Revd Mark Boyling, said: Our architect made special mention of the need to address problems with the Nave roofs in the 5 yearly report he prepared for the Cathedral Chapter in 2014. A further close inspection took place in 2015 which confirmed that the lead was failing and needed replacement. It is wonderful news to receive a grant which allows this important work to be achieved without delay. I think we can say that this is one of the occasions when losing 5 bays of the nave in the 1640s has kept costs within reach! The help this Government Scheme is giving to Cathedrals across the country cannot be underestimated.
