History and Conservation

The original Salisbury Cathedral was completed at Old Sarum in 1092 under Osmund, the first Bishop of Salisbury. In 1220 the foundations were laid for the Cathedral at the site it is today. Our Works Department use many of the same materials and techniques to maintain and restore our building that were used by the craftspeople who built it 800 years ago. We rely on the generosity of our donors to continue this vital work.
