The Project

The Project

Project Pilgrim is an ambitious ten-year programme of capital development, regeneration and community engagement, delivered in three separate phases.

We are nearing the end of Phase One, with transformational construction or painstaking conservation works completed in the following areas:

  • Cathedral Green: providing a fitting setting for the building and providing a green oasis for all in the centre of Gloucester
  • Welcome & Entrance: including making Gloucester Cathedral accessible to all and sharing our stories with all of our visitors through imaginative interpretation
  • Lady Chapel: previously the most ‘at risk’ area of the Cathedral, we have undertaken major conservation and restoration work to the exterior and interior of our stunning 15th century Lady Chapel
  • Solar Panels: the installation of 150 solar panels to the south nave roof now provides more than 25% of the Cathedral’s electrical needs without damage to the environment

Phase One concludes in autumn 2019 and over the next 12 months we will continue to work with partners across the county to deliver events, activities and learning opportunities which reach out to new audiences
