St Albans Cathedral
St Albans Cathedral
St Albans Cathedral was made a cathedral in 1877, though its official name is The Cathedral and Abbey Church of St Alban. As a cathedral it is unusual in that with no local stone much of it was built with bricks from removed from the Roman town of Verulamium. The west front was built in the 1880s to a design by Lord Grimthorpe, an amateur architect with the money to fund it. Nikolaus Pevsner described him a "pompous, righteous bully."
