Lichfield Cathedral awarded £100,000 for its urgent masonry repair work

Lichfield Cathedral has been awarded a £100,000 grant towards the cost of more urgent masonry repairs.

The medieval building is in the grip of continued renovation and its naming as one of six English cathedrals to receive funding "could not have come at a better time", according to church elders.

The grant, from the Wolfson Foundation and the Cathedrals Fabric Commission for England, will go towards stonework repairs of Lichfield Cathedral's Lady Chapel, in conjunction with the conservation of the Herkenrode Glass.
