Salford Cathedral

Opened in 1848, Salford Cathedral is Grade II listed and lies close to the historic centre of Salford. Architect Matthew Hadfield’s Gothic Revival design is significant in being the first Roman Catholic church to be built to a cruciform plan in England since the Reformation.

Externally the building has changed little since construction but internally has suffered from restorations intended to facilitate changes in liturgy decreed by the Second Vatican Council, during which many significant architectural features were lost.

Duncan Sanderson director and AABC Accredited Architect of KPS was appointed to undertake the 2019 Quinquennial Inspection Report and to contribute to the national ‘Cathedral Fabric Survey’. A successful application to Phase 1 of the Historic England’s Cultural Recovery grant program resulted in the restoration of the external fabric of the War Memorial Chapel, completed in 2021.
