Notes

St Philip's was consecrated in 1715 and was designed by the Warwickshire architect Thomas Archer. It was built in a style reflecting the Italian Baroque after an Act of Parliament in 1708 created the first new parish in Birmingham, based on the part of the town known as the High Town. When the Diosese of Birmingham was formed in 1905 St Philip's Church was designated the Cathedral.This medal commemorates the centenary of St. Philip's consecration.
