One of the country’s finest mediaeval buildings; a historic monument that never stands still
The Cathedral Church
Lincoln Cathedral is one of the largest and most important mediaeval buildings in Western Europe and is considered by many as the finest example of early English gothic architecture. Largely dating from the 13th century it is a masterpiece of historic architecture; yet it never stands still.
Since appointment of Director Nicholas Rank as ‘Architect and Surveyor to the Fabric’ in 1996, we have managed an active programme of repair, restoration and conservation to the Cathedral Church and close properties. With an active community, visitors from around the world, rich music heritage and major historic library, our role as architects to the Cathedral is as varied and complex as it is fascinating and enjoyable.
Ongoing conservation and restoration
In addition to this rolling £1.6M annual programme of work, we undertake significant individual projects which have included the restoration of the 7.5m diameter Dean’s Eye Window; conversion of the Cathedral Chapter House to an education and conference centre; and the design of a new visitor facilities building which, sitting in the Cathedral’s Nettleyard, was the first addition to the Church in a century.
