CLIFTON ROMAN CATHOLIC CATHEDRAL

ALTERNATIVE NAME:  CATHEDRAL CHURCH OF SS PETER AND PAUL, CLIFTON CATHEDRAL
DESCRIPTION + /

Clifton Roman Catholic Cathedral was built between 1969 and 1973 to designs by the Percy Thomas Partnership and was built to replace the Pro-Cathedral. The building consists of pre-cast concrete panels and in-situ concrete with lead-clad pitched roofs stepped between tiled flat roofs. It is an irregular elongated hexagon in plan. Exterior cladding is in pink Aberdeen granite aggregate with contrasting white concrete piers. There is a spire in which hang two bells, the only fittings taken from the Pro-Cathedral.

There are two main entrances to the building - the portal of St Paul from Clifton Park and the portal of St Peter from Pembroke Road. The interior is completely open, with no fixed seating. There is little decoration save for geometric ceiling scultures. The floor is laid down in a hexagonal honeycomb pattern.
