Beautiful stained glass windows, something you don’t see in modern churches with the coloured transfers stuck on plain glass. The frescoes are lovely as well.

Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral is very modern and its got the best stained glass windows in the British Isles.
And its also got Lutyens Crypt which some say is Liverpool’s third cathedral.

I think I've worked out the position of the organ in relation to yesterday's pad . That gothic window is just magnificent . The fresco looks like scenes from Canterbury Tales .

Never been in this church. Surprised at the rich decoration, almost sumptuous.
Nice to see you contributing again Andrew.

A fine organ, and the stained glass make an excellent photo.
