Full Dedication: Cathedral Church of St. Mary the Virgin, St. Peter and
Became a Cathedral in 1914
The original cathedral for Essex was at Bradwell-on-Sea. At the centre of the new cathedral in Chelmsford is a mid-late medieval church with the bulk dating from the 15th century. A large 18th century addition gave the church greater proportions as Chelmsford began to grow in size and needed the higher capacity.
The Cathedral at Bradwell ceased functioning as such some centuries before the church at Chelmsford was raised to the status of cathedral in 1914.
