Guildford Cathedral by Mike Kitchingman

Guildford Cathedral

Guildford Cathedral was conceived by the architect Sir Edward Maufe in the "English Gothic" style. Construction began in 1936 but was delayed and halted during the war years eventually being consecrated in 1961 and finally completed in 1965. It stands on Stag Hill just outside Guildford.

The beautiful carved glass panels at the West entrance and the South porch were carved by John Hutton who worked on Coventry Cathedral at the same time. The minimalist design and tall narrow arches are awe inspiring as they soar upwards.

I gave this image a slight Magenta tone to emphasize the feeling of serenity it invoked in me.
