Liverpool Cathedral #4

Liverpool Cathedral #4

This is Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral photographed at night from the top of St James's Mount.

It was designed by a young architect called Giles Gilbert Scott who won the design competition for the cathedral in 1903 when he was just 22 years old. Scott spent his whole life working on the cathedral, through two world wars and shortages of funds but he died in 1960 and never saw it finished.

The cathedral was finally completed in 1978.

It's difficult to judge the scale of this huge building from a photo so to give you an idea of it's size here's some stats:
It's 189m (620ft) long which makes it the second longest cathedral in the world.
The tower is 100m high and houses the world's highest and heaviest peal of bells.
