900 years ago the Normans began to build the original church. It was rebuilt and enlarged between the 13th and 15th centuries and became the 'Civic Church' with strong links with the merchants and guilds (Guildhall).
Just over 100 years ago the Victorian Architect, Raphael Brandon magnificantly restored and, in places, rebuilt the church, including the addition of a 220ft spire.
