Christ Church Cathedral

Christ Church Cathedral, begun in 1845, is one of the 
best and earliest examples of the Gothic Revival in 
Canada. Its stone walls, crossing tower and picturesque 
massing, echoing the internal parts of the church, were 
typical of this style. The design conforms to the aims 
of the Ecclesiological Society, and Anglican reform move-
ment which sought a return to the mediaeval church both 
in worship and in building. Modeled after a 14th-century 
church in Norfolk, the plans were drawn by the English 
architect, Frank Wills, at the request of John Medley, 
Bishop of Fredericton and a member of the Society.
