Chad's Cathedral a gothic brick built structure near the city centre just up from Snow Hill Station. It is a Catholic Cathedral and was built in 1839 by Augustus Pugin the architect who is known for his building of the House of Parliament in London. It is one of his important works. This was the first Roman Catholic church to be built in the UK since the Reformation.
Features 19th century stained galss and a 16th century Flemish pulpit. The statue of the Virgin Mary and the largest new manual organ in the UK is also of notable interest. The building looks a little forlorn and out of place surrounded by busy roads and the rush of traffic.
