St Paul's at 300

Martin Stancliffe

2011 is the 300th anniversary of the completion of Christopher Wren's Cathedral. This coincides with the completion of an historic £40 million programme of cleaning and repair, in which the building has been comprehensively restored inside and out. Now that the final scaffolding has been removed, the two million visitors and worshippers who come to St Paul's each year can witness Gresham Professor Christopher Wren's original vision, see his cathedral as fresh as the day it was completed and understand something of the changes it has undergone in its first 300 years. In a serious of two lectures (23 and 30 November) Architect Martin Stancliffe will describe this exciting project. 

 

 

This lecture is the first part to the lecture on 30 November 2011.
