Roman Catholic Cathedral of St John The Baptist
The Cathedral, located on Earlham Road, was constructed between 1882 and 1910 to designs by George Gilbert Scott, Jr. as a parish church dedicated to John the Baptist, on the site of the Norwich City Gaol.The funds for its construction were provided by Henry Fitzalan-Howard, 15th Duke of Norfolk. In 1976 it was consecrated as the cathedral church for the newly erected Diocese of East Anglia and the seat of the Bishop of East Anglia. It is the second largest Roman Catholic cathedral in England.
It is one of two cathedrals in the city of Norwich, and should not be confused with the Church of England Norwich Cathedral, completed in the Norman style in 1145.
