In 1784 the Reverend Sir John Cullum had published his book on the history of Hawstead.
In 1813 the work was re-published as "The History and Antiquities of Hawstead and Hardwick in the County of Suffolk." Sir John had died in 1785, but the new edition, which was limited to 230 copies, included his own corrections, as well as notes by his brother, Sir Thomas Gery Cullum, and 7 new plates.
The cathedral is a Grade I listed building, and part of a heritage site that also includes the former monastic buildings to the north, which are also listed Grade I. The building of the nave was recommenced in 1485, more than 150 years after it was begun. Remarkably, for an English medieval architect, he maintained the original form, changing only the details.
The Reverend John Beart became pastor of the Independent Congregation in Bury St Edmunds.
The cathedral (formerly the abbey church of a Benedictine monastery, dedicated to Saint Werburgh) is dedicated to Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary. There are a number of windows containing fine Flowing Decorated tracery of this period.
Since 1541 it has been the seat of the Bishop of Chester. The work ceased in 1375, in which year there was a severe outbreak of plague in England.
All the major styles of English medieval architecture, from Norman to Perpendicular, are represented in the present building. Like that at York, the vault is of wood, imitating stone.
The cathedral and former monastic buildings were extensively restored during the 19th century (amidst some controversy), and a free-standing bell-tower was added in the 20th century. Seth Derwall completed the south transept to a Perpendicular Gothic design, as seen in the transomed windows of the clerestory.The buildings are a major tourist attraction in Chester. He also built the central tower, southwest porch and cloisters.
