St Nicholas Church Gloucester

Westgate St, Gloucester, United Kingdom
207 Westgate Street Gloucester GL1 2RN GB

have created this site because I think that St Nicholas Church is a remarkable and interesting building in many respects.

Also I don’t believe that nearly enough is being done to promote this unique building to tourists. Italy has the Leaning Tower of Pisa; England has the Leaning Church of Gloucester. It is just as startling to stand inside it and see those huge pillars and other features leaning in different directions, wondering at the challenges that faced the builders. There is such a surge in interest in the mechanics behind history that I think tours would be popular, highlighting, as far as we know, the actual construction methods when all those huge stones were moved onto the site by animal power, all scaffolding was wooden poles and masons used tools we wouldn’t give shed-space to (or would we?). The human effort (and cost) is mind boggling to us! Even the completion of Gaudi’s extraordinary unfinished Cathedral, the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona is being carried out by pouring concrete into moulds, applying the mosaic inner face, and then offering up the complete sections into position. Carving real stone (as his masons did) is too expensive! Anyway, not the subject for this website!

Although it became redundant in 1975, St Nicholas is still consecrated and occasionally hosts special church services
