We are proud of our Pugin connection & the richness it adds to the region's heritage offer.
The Cathedral Church of the Diocese of Nottingham was built in one phase by A.W.N. Pugin with his builder George Myers, and funded in part by Pugin’s patron Lord Shrewsbury.
Thanks to a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Nottingham Cathedral is embarking on an ambitious project to restore A.W.N Pugin's original design work to the fabric of the building.

Now a Grade II* listed building, St Barnabas was built in the Early English Gothic Style and this reflected in the simplicity of the exterior.
Each year over 100,000 people visit the Cathedral- people with or without faith- all will find a warm welcome and the chance to experience a little bit of peace in the heart of the city.
