The Anglican Cathedral

This is the Anglican Cathedral, in Liverpool. It is the longest cathedral in the world (189 metres/ 620 ft) and is 100.8 metres tall at its highest point. It is a fairly recent build- being finished in 1978, built in the Gothic Revival style of architecture. It was originally designed to have two towers, but was redesigned in 1910 to have the one, single tower. Most of the stained-glass windows were provided by Whitefriars of London, and the bells of the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral are the highest and heaviest ringing peal in the world- at 200ft high and 16.5 tons in total. Its heaviest bell, Great George, is the second heaviest bell in the UK, resting only behind the one in St Pauls Cathedral, London. It has it's own special constabulary to watch over it.
