On this Spot

Stand in the footsteps of those who saw the 1984 fire and its aftermath by following a new digital-visual trail – On This Spot.

Use your mobile phone to scan QR codes placed in and around the cathedral to unlock dramatic archive photos revealing the shocking events of 9 July 1984.

Each stop on the trail will include chance for reflection and prayer, remembering the devastation and giving thanks for the dedicated and talented individuals who helped to rebuild and restore the magnificent cathedral we see today.

The trail, which takes place inside and outside the cathedral, will run until Saturday 30 November.

The trail inside the cathedral is included with general admission – book your timed entry ticket on our website.
