Encyclopedia > Newport Cathedral

St Woolos Cathedral in the city of Newport is the cathedral for the diocese of Monmouth (Monmouthshire). As well as a cathedral, it serves as a parish church.

The name "Woolos" is a corruption of Gwynllyw, the 5th century Welsh saint who first founded a religious establishment on the site.

The present building has sections that date from pre-Norman times, but has been partially rebuilt or extended in every period up to the 1960s.
