The Cathedral of ESSEX will be ringing out for St. George

The first known church on this site was some 800 years ago and over the centuries was rebuilt using stone. The earliest record of a town sited here was in the Roman era and called Caesaromagus  meaning ‘Caesar’s Market Place’ but sadly this faded away with the exodus of the Romans.  It was slowly reborn and by the Middle Ages CHELMSFORD was mentioned in the Doomsday Book of 1086 and thrived as a market town once again, helped by the building of a bridge over the River Can in 1100.   Its church was promoted to being a Cathedral when a new diocese was created in 1914 and its ring of 12 bells will be heard loud and clear across the county of Essex for ST GEORGE’S Day.
