This is Derby Cathedral in the centre of the City of Derby and is the most well known iconic building in the City, many millions of people would have visited this magnificent building over the centuries.

Originally built as All Saints Church, the building became a Cathedral on October 28th 1927 by Royal Charter.

The tower, 212 feet high is of the finest creations of late Perpendicular Gothic 1510-1530. This tower is open to the public on several days each year so you can climb the 189 steps to the roof top to take in the views over the city (see my links below for photos).

You can also stop off part way up and see the bells, which are the oldest ring of 10 bells in the world.

The view I have captured here is of the nave, directly in front of the famous Bakewell Screen. A local ironsmith, Robert Bakewell, was commissioned to make the now famous screen, which was put in place in 1730. The nave was designed by James Gibbs and completed in 1725, for detailed historical information on Derby Cathedral please visit their website.

In 2006 Peregrine Falcons nested on Derby's Cathedral tower, this attracted lots of people. In 2007 they returned and this year they even have their own webcam so you can watch them (see links below).
