Liverpool Anglican Cathedral

Liverpool Cathedral is the Church of England Cathedral of Liverpool, built on St James's Mount in Liverpool and is the seat of the Bishop of Liverpool. It is the Cathedral Church of Christ, in Liverpool.

  

In late 1901, two well-known architects were appointed as assessors for an open competition for architects wishing to be considered for the design of the Cathedral.

Architects were invited by public advertisement to submit portfolios of their work for consideration. In 1903, the assessors recommended a proposal submitted by the 22-year-old Giles Gilbert Scott, who was still an articled pupil working in Temple Moore's practice, and had no existing buildings to his credit. He told the assessors that so far his only major work had been to design a pipe-rack. The choice of winner was even more contentious with the Cathedral Committee when it was discovered that Scott was a Roman Catholic, but the decision stood.
