Other Information

  • The original church was founded by King Edmund in around 943 as a royal collegiate church however there is no trace of its existence today.
  • The current cathedral dates back from the 14th century although it appears to be based on an earlier medieval building which drawings show was about the same size as the present church. One theory is it became structurally unstable and was pulled down.
  • The tower dates from 1510 to 1530 and was built in the popular perpendicular gothic style of the time.
  • Derby Cathedral became a cathedral by Royal Charter in 1927.
