Portsmouth Cathedral

« Back

The medieval parish church was extended by Sir Charles Nicholson to become Portsmouth Cathedral in the years leading up to the Second World War, a temporary brick wall being built to close the incomplete nave prior to the outbreak of hostilities.

Following a competitive selection process in 1984, the last bay of the nave and the west front was built in 1989-1990 to a new design by Michael Drury, now a partner in St Ann’s Gate Architects LLP. His re-ordering of the cathedral followed in 1991-1992, to a brief by David Stancliffe, then Provost of Portsmouth.
