Cash boost for weather-battered Guildford Cathedral

Guildford Cathedral has been awarded £500,000 for vital repair work to its weather-battered roof, tower and transepts.

The award comes from the government’s First World War Centenary Cathedral Repairs Fund, which supports repairs to historic buildings.

The money follows a £4.6m grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund for the Grade II listed building.

Work is due to begin in the summer and should take a year to complete.
