The interior of the Cathedral is now nearly completed scaffolded, trenches are being dug for the new heating system, and the first steps in the redecoration project have been taken.
The Cathedral’s centre section is used for worship on Sundays, and the Cathedral is open for viewing on Saturdays (after cleaning at 9.30 am).
The Cathedral is closed Monday – Friday until the end of August – but mid week services are being said at the Bridge Chapel, or if the choir are singing, services are at St Mary’s RC Church, Bridge Gate, Derby.
Please see the music scheme on the website for details.
Dr John Davies, Dean of Derby, said today: “These are really exciting days for Derby Cathedral. And it is oddly uplifting to see the whole nave packed with people on a Sunday surrounded by scaffolding at every turn. People are being brilliant, waiting for the end of August and a new chapter in Cathedral life and ministry”.
