Rochester Cathedral

Rochester Cathedral is England’s second oldest cathedral, having been founded in 604AD by Bishop Justus. The present building dates back to 1080. It is the work of the French monk, Gundulf, and is a glorious example of Norman architecture. The Grade 1 listed building is constructed in part with Kentish Ragstone.

Gallagher Aggregates’ Masonry Department supplies quality dressed Kentish Ragstone for the restoration and conservation works to the cathedral when required. With a guaranteed supply of Kentish Ragstone for another 30 years and modern production equipment which can produce stone that blends in with the original stonework, Gallagher’s involvement in the restoration of Rochester Cathedral is sure to continue for many years to come.
