Liverpool Cathedral 1

I've been away and so silent for the last week - because I have only today worked out how to post photos using my iPad and photos from my phone. Ah, the wonders of technology! Here are my meagre efforts. (Just wish I was a faster learner...)

On our way to Scotland recently, we spent time with friends near Liverpool and visited the extraordinary Liverpool Cathedral.


What an amazing space it was - vast and vaulted - the largest cathedral in Britain ... and another surprise, built in the 20th century, starting in 1902 and not completed until 1978.

Much more when I'm home ...

  1. My Dad's family were all from Liverpool, and even though there wasn't a religious bone amongst the lot of them, my Grandma was always talking about the cathedral. Thank you for reminding me!

    1. I may have had a small victory here - but not on my PC - a nasty attack of adware - so no more photos of Liverpool Cathedral for the moment!

  3. I hope you had time to go up to the roof for the amazing view - and also that you managed to see the other astonishing cathedral in Liverpool.
    Technology can seem like a miracle when it works - but soooo frustrating when it doesn't, or when one cannot get one's head around it. Great that you have succeeded.

    1. We did indeed go up the tower and onto the roof for the spectacular, if very cold, view. Unfortunately we didn't have time for the other cathedral - affectionately known as Paddy's Wigwam I'm told - it had to wait for another visit along with all the waterfront attractions.

  4. What an image. The warm colors are a treat on this cold gloomy day in Pennsylvania.

    1. It was a truly awesome place - I was amazed by its sheer size the height of the lofted ceilings and the warmth of the colour. Extraordinary!
