DERBY CATHEDRAL

Derbyshire

Derby Cathedral, Derbyshire

Full dedication: Cathedral Church of All Saints
Became a Cathedral in 1927

The predecessor church here began as a Collegiate church to Lincoln Cathedral. By 1723, however, it was in such a poor state of repair that is said to have been taken down in one night by the vicar of the time.

James Gibb was chosen to design the new church, and built a typical 18th Century "box" church with the addition of a more traditional looking church tower. Bonnie Prince Charlie prayed at Derby Cathedral the day he decided not to attack London but to retreat north.

The church became a Cathedral in 1927 with the creation of the Derby Diocese.
