Guildford Cathedral

Impressive close up and from afar, but to me resembling a power station, Guildford Cathedral nonetheless makes a statement. The Cathedral Church of the Holy Spirit, its full title, is an Anglican Cathedral on Stag Hill, Guildford, Surrey.

While construction began in 1936, it was halted during WWII with the cathedral finally consecrated by Bishop George Reindorp in May, 1961. Completed with kind donations from the local community, the Buy A Brick campaign led to the church to be affectionately known as the People's Cathedral.

Outside, there are many statues and carvings adorning the cathedral, whilst inside is bright, white, spacious and very cathedral looking. Although modern its design is gothic in style, the architect being Sir Edward Maufe. The cathedral is the last to be consecrated in Britain.
