Worcester Cathedral N/A

The See of Worcester was founded in the seventh century by Etheldred, King of the Mercians, the see being separated from that of Litchfield. It originally contained the see of Gloucester which was separated at the Reformation. The arms of the See are Argent ten torteaux [red roundels]. That of the Dean and Chapter is that of Worcester Priory had 12 torteaux, but the canton with the image of the Virgin and Child obscures two so that only 10 appear.
