The Fabric of the Cathedral 1875-1912

Restoration of Rochester Cathedral 1904-1906 (DRc/Emf 71/1-13)

A great deal of restoration work was undertaken during the period 1904-1906, much of it to the exterior of the building. The tower built in about 1808 was recased in stone in 1826 but was always considered rather unsatisfactory. Therefore in 1904 it was taken down and replaced by the present spire. It was built by Samuel Fancourt Halliday of Stamford, Lincolnshire at the sole expense of Thomas Hellyar Foord, a local builder and prominent alderman of the city, who also provided the clock. The new spire was dedicated on the 1300th anniversary of the founding of the see and the cathedral church, 30 November 1904+.

+ Smith, F.F., A History of Rochester, p289 (copy in the local studies collection at this centre)

The nine bundles of drawings listed here are the working drawings used during the restoration work, and are in consequence somewhat torn and dirty.

[Editor's note: these documents appear to cover a longer and earlier period than the original archivist believed. However, rather than re-arrange the material, the bundle is preserved as found. It is possible earlier drawings present were referred to in the period 1904-1906 and filed accordingly.]

The Fabric of the Cathedral 1875-1912

Restoration of Rochester Cathedral 1904-1906 (DRc/Emf 71/1-13)

A great deal of restoration work was undertaken during the period 1904-1906, much of it to the exterior of the building. The tower built in about 1808 was recased in stone in 1826 but was always considered rather unsatisfactory. Therefore in 1904 it was taken down and replaced by the present spire. It was built by Samuel Fancourt Halliday of Stamford, Lincolnshire at the sole expense of Thomas Hellyar Foord, a local builder and prominent alderman of the city, who also provided the clock. The new spire was dedicated on the 1300th anniversary of the founding of the see and the cathedral church, 30 November 1904+.

+ Smith, F.F., A History of Rochester, p289 (copy in the local studies collection at this centre)

The nine bundles of drawings listed here are the working drawings used during the restoration work, and are in consequence somewhat torn and dirty.

Undertaking by Thomas Hellyar Foord to pay all expenses of the work on the tower over and above the £5,000 already paid.

The Fabric of the Cathedral

The Chapter Room, 1906-1908 (DRc/Emf 73/1-75)

In October 1906 Thomas Hellyar Foord offered to finance the rebuilding of the eastern wall of the Chapter Room and to replace the window with a large bay window. His offer was accepted and the wall largely rebuilt with stones from the tower demolished in 1903-1904 which were then lying on Acorn Wharf, Rochester and which belonged to Mr. Foord. At the same time hot water central heating was also installed. The work was done by West Brothers and the architect was Charles Hodgson Fowler.

Letter. C. Hodgson Fowler to R. A. Arnold, Chapter Clerk. Will inspect north doorway of the choir. Hopes to have the prices for the Chapter Room in a fortnight. Is detained by the illness of his wife's mother in Lincoln, Lincolnshire.

The Fabric of the Cathedral

James Thomas Irvine and the excavations at Rochester Cathedral 1874 - 1894 (DRc/Emf 77/1-134)

Part relation of the story of Abbot Wulgat of Peykirk, Lincolnshire and 18 monks turned out of their monastery by the machinations of local landowners.
