Nottingham Civic Society has awarded the Nottingham’s Catholic Cathedral a generous grant in support of its ongoing Restoring Pugin Project.

Canon Malachy Brett, Dean of the cathedral, was delighted to receive a grant of £15,000 this week from the Nottingham Civic Society. This grant has been given with a specific remit to contribute towards the repair of the roofs of the East-End Chapels, the focus of the restoration project.

“As we continue to work to reveal and restore Pugin’s original decorative schemes in the East-End of the Cathedral, this grant is an essential contribution to ensuring this work is properly protected and preserved for generations to come,” said Canon Brett.

Nottingham Civic Society has organised a number of visits to the Cathedral, including for the Heritage Open Days. More recently it has collaborated with the Victorian Society, sharing the Restoring Pugin project and the newly discovered paint schemes with wider audiences from around the UK.
