Liverpool Cathedral

I took my lovely sister for her first visit to this Cathedral on Wednesday.

Liverpool Cathedral is the Church of England Cathedral of the Diocese of Liverpool, built on St James's Mount in Liverpool, and designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott.
It was started in 1904 and finished in 1978, the largest in the UK and the fifth largest in the world.

It may be referred to as the Cathedral Church of Christ in Liverpool (as recorded in the Document of Consecration) or the Cathedral Church of the Risen Christ, Liverpool.

Remembrance Sunday 2013. Lest We Forget.

I went to the Remembrance Sunday Parade at Wigan Parish Church today. As usual there was a large turnout and the crisp November sun shone on the proceedings.
