The Great Restoration of the 1920s
Ongoing exhibition
Location: Crypt

On Christmas Eve 1924 St Paul’s Cathedral was served with a Dangerous Structures Notice requesting the removal of the dome. Using archive material and objects from the Cathedral collections, this display recounts the extraordinary story of how the Cathedral moved and cracked, causing concerns for the structure, as well as the ingenious engineering endeavours that ensured the building was made safe for future generations.

All exhibitions, displays and demonstrations are included in Cathedral ticket admission.
