St Mary's Cathedral, spires

The spires of St Mary's Cathedral, viewed from the north east corner of Hyde Park. This sandstone cathedral was built in the Gothic Revival style in stages from 1868, with the spires only completed in 2002.

    1. Lisca, it already looked like a grand cathedral before they were built but even more so since.

  9. The spires are beautiful, it's hard to imagine they were completed so recently.
