Birmingham Cathedral was built in 1715. It was the parish church of St Philip and in 1905 became the Anglican Cathedral of Birmingham. It is a stunning example of English Baroque architecture and houses outstanding examples of stained glass windows by Birmingham born artist Sir Edward Burne-Jones.
The cathedral serves a vibrant and dynamic urban population and is mother church for the whole Birmingham Diocese.
In 2015 the cathedral celebrated its Tercentenary. This blog seeks to capture stories collected around this time.
