Canterbury Cathedral

DBR Leadwork

Founded in 597, Canterbury Cathedral is one of the oldest and most famous Christian structures in the country.

In the medieval period, it was one of the most important centres of pilgrimage, and today it is still the seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury, the leader of the Church of England, and the symbolic leader of the worldwide Anglican Communion.

In 2015, DBR Leadwork replaced the roof covering of the northwest transept of the Cathedral with new Code 8 sand cast lead sheeting, an exceptional service as it incorporated the standing seam welts that are unique to Canterbury Cathedral.

Additionally, DBR Leadwork was responsible for a substantial amount of specialist carpentry, which included replacing all of the oak wall plates and rafters, scarf repairs to the rafter feet, and the replacement of purlin beams.
