St Albans Cathedral is set to benefit from a grant worth thousands of pounds to go towards urgent repairs.

The First World War Centenary Cathedral repair fund has granted the Abbey £438,000 to renovate the west front and main entrance along with some medieval stonework on the west porches.

This comes after the Culture Secretary Sajid Javid announced today that 22 cathedrals across England will now be able to fix leaking roofs, repair stained glass and replace stonework.

The £20 million Cathedral Repairs Fund was announced by the Chancellor in the Budget 2014.

This was the first round of funding allocations and will be followed by two more. The next round will close in September 2014 with the final round closing in January 2015.
