THE Dean of Chelmsford Cathedral has retired.
The Rev Peter Judd officially left the post on October 6 and will now move to Cambridge with his wife.
During his time as dean, Peter has seen the cathedral in the heart of the city be refurbished and extended.
He said: “My family and I have enjoyed living in Chelmsford and I was delighted when Chelmsford was made a city on my watch.
“I wish my successor every blessing, knowing they will be a very lucky person.”
Stephen Cottrell, the Bishop of Chelmsford, praised Peter for his work as dean, calling his contribution “outstanding”.
Bishop Stephen said: “Under his stewardship the cathedral has been reinvigorated as a place of prayer, study, worship and mission.
“Just step into the building and you are challenged by a contemporary vision of Christian faith.”
