Southwark Cathedral

London Bridge. London SE1 9DA

Southwark Cathedral, or The Cathedral and Collegiate Church of St Saviour and St Mary Overie lies on the south bank of the River Thames adjacent to London Bridge.  It is the mother church of the Anglican Diocese of Southwark.  It has been a place of Christian worship for more than 1,000 years but a cathedral only since the creation of the diocese of Southwark in 1905.  Between 1106 and 1538 it was the church of an Augustinian priory, Southwark Priory, dedicated to the Virgin Mary. Following the dissolution of the monasteries, it became a parish church, with the new dedication of St Saviour's. The church was in the diocese of Winchester until 1877, when the parish of St Saviour's, along with other South London parishes, was transferred to the diocese of Rochester.  The present building retains the basic form of the Gothic structure built between 1220 and 1420, although the nave is a late 19th-century reconstruction.
