West Screen by John Hutton

Linking the old and new Cathedral as a symbol of joyous revival.

The West Screen is located at the entrance of the New Cathedral. Designed and hand engraved by John Hutton (1906 - 1978) over 10 years and features 66 figures depicting saints and angels.

The glass screen is both a wall and a window, linking the old Cathedral with the New . From the top of the Queen's steps outside visitors are invited to pause at look upon their own reflections as the image of Christ on the altar’s tapestry peers out. From the inside the Ruins are visible through the screen, providing a constant reminder of the journey from destruction to resurrection.
