Rochester Cathedral

    Newer Older

    View large.

    Rochester (Roman name DVROBRIVAE) is on the ancient Celtic route between Dover and London.The Romans paved it and called it Watling Street.It's now know as The A2.

    It was The Romans who built the first bridge across The River Medway .Ever since it has been strategically important as the lowest crossing point on The River.

    After Canterbury, also in Kent, Rochester is the second oldest Cathedral in England.
    It was founded in 604A.D. by St. Justus and built on land donated by King Ethelbert.
    However, it was many centuries before it took on it's present shape.

    It was Bishop Gundolf, who in 1080, started the transformation. The glorious Norman architecture of the nave, parts of the crypt, as well as one of the finest Romanesque facades in England, make this a beautiful place to visit. Hidden from view (although it can be viewed by special appointment) is one of the oldest doors in England.

    The shadows on the front of the cathedral are from Rochester Castle (Norman) which is just across the road.

    Thank you for your visit.

    Have a great day, whatever day, you are reading this
