10.00 am St Chad's
St Chad's Cathedral, which was erected between 1838 and 1841, was the first Catholic cathedral built in this country since the C16 Reformation and occupies a very special place in the history of Birmingham.
It is a major early work by A W N Pugin and is a landmark building of the Gothic Revival. Its significant furnishings include important C15 and C16 German and Netherlandish work installed by Pugin following his ideas of combining Gothic and the Revival, a significant collection of Pugin- and Hardman- stained glass and recent work showing late C20 Gothic taste.
Meet at 9.50 am in front of the Cathedral, St Chad's Queensway, Birmingham B4 6EU.
After our tour we have the option of going to The Bull, 1 Price Street Birmingham B4 6JU - it opens at 12.00 noon and serves traditional food. 0121 333 6757
Lunch at own cost.
After our tour of the Cathedral we will take a short walk to The Bull, I Price Street, Birmingham B4 6JU which opens at 12 noon and serves traditional food in wonderful surroundings. We are sure of a warm welcome and real ale - not sure if they are served in these great jugs though!
