St Albans Cathedral (formerly St Albans Abbey, officially The Cathedral and Abbey Church of St Alban) is a Church of England cathedral church at St Albans, England. At 84 metres (276 ft), its nave is the longest of any cathedral in England. With much of its present architecture dating from Norman times, it became a cathedral in 1877 and is the second longest cathedral in the United Kingdom (after Winchester). Local residents often call it “the abbey”, although the present cathedral represents only the church of the old Benedictine abbey.
St Albans is a constituency represented in the House of Commons of the UK Parliament since 2005 by Anne Main, a Conservative.
St Albans is a wonderful market town and the site of the execution of Britain’s first Christian martyr (209AD).
