Three West Midland cathedrals are to share a £250,000 cash boost for repairs.
The money, supplied by English Heritage, will include £100,000 each for Hereford and Coventry cathedrals and £50,000 for Worcester cathedral.
The awards represent a quarter of the money being awarded as part of the English Heritage Cathedral Grants scheme.
The Dean of Hereford, the Very Rev Michael Tavinor, said he was grateful for the grant, which would go towards the third and final phase of repairs to the turrets and roof of the cathedral's Central Tower.
"Maintaining the cathedral is a huge and continuing challenge and one that remains very much in our minds and in the minds of our congregation," he said.
"Approval of this grant is a great relief.
"It means we can take a set of plans off the drawing board and put the work into practice."
He continued: "The cathedral means a great deal to local residents and to the city of Hereford and we're all looking forward to being able to see the scaffolding removed from the tower."
The money awarded to Coventry will be used to finish replacing the copper sheets on the nave roof, which have been leaking.
Worcester will use its money to continue conservation work on its 12th century polygonal Chapter House.
Tim Johnston, the recently appointed regional director for English Heritage in the West Midlands, said: "Our cathedrals make an important economic and social contribution to the region," he said.
"I am delighted that these important buildings will be secured for generations to come."
