Between 1952 and 1961 200,000 brick-givers made the construction of Guildford Cathedral possible. Can you help us bring these stories to life?

Guildford Cathedral has successfully secured initial supportfrom the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for repairs to the Cathedral fabric and development of its project: Securing Guildford Cathedral’s future: treasures, memories and stories revealed.

We are now looking for people to take part in an oral history project to capture the memories of the brick-givers and others involved in the Cathedral story.

There are two ways you can get involved in the project:
