the Cathedral Church of St. Peter and St. Paul
Structure in General
- A place of worship has existed on this site from approximately 800AD onwards. The third or fourth church to occupy the site was dedicated in 1280, but was pulled down and rebuilt in 1430. The chancel, tower, spire and sanctuary of the present church date from this time.
- The Shrewsbury Chapel was built in 1520 and the church was extended again in 1777. Between the 16th and 18th centuries it was known as Trinity Church, but either side of this a dedication to SS Peter and Paul was adopted.
- Sheffield Parish Church became a cathedral in 1913, following a number of restoration and re-ordering schemes. In 1960-66, a modern narthex linking in to the old building was constructed at the western end.
