Peter Atkinson


Worcester Cathedral is a magnificent sight as it rises majestically above the River Severn. Worcester has been the seat of a bishopric since the Seventh Century, and the Cathedral was served by monks until the Reformation. St Oswald and St Wulfstan were among the bishops. Since the Eighteenth Century, the Cathedral has been famous for its part in the annual Three Choirs Festival, the oldest choral festival in existence. Today the Cathedral is the centre of a vibrant community of clergy and laypeople, offering the praises of God each day, serving the city and diocese of Worcester, and attracting visitors from all over the world.

Peter Atkinson, Dean

Sponsor a Stone on Edgar Tower

Edgar_Tower_for_website_150.jpgThe Edgar Tower is one of Worcester's oldest structures. This impressive gateway was built in the early 1200's by order of King John, who is buried in Worcester Cathedral and whose legacy lives on in Magna Carta. It is a grade 1 listed Ancient Monument and in Historic England's 'Heritage at Risk register.

We need to raise 250,000 to complete the restoration. Please help us by sponsoring a stone from 50, which will be engraved in your chosen initials. You will also receive a certificate containing your personal dedication of up to 30 words. Every donation and dedication is recorded in a Commemorative Ledger.
