Deansgate Sandpit
Deansgate Sandpit

Manchester Cathedral
The Cathedral and Collegiate Church of St Mary, St Denys and St George.
Although extensively refaced, restored and extended in the Victorian period, and then again following severe bomb damage in the 20th century, the main body of the Cathedral largely derives from the wardenship of James Stanley (warden 14851506), and is in the Perpendicular Gothic style. Stanley was also primarily responsible for commissioning the spectacular late medieval wooden furnishings, including the pulpitum, the choir stalls, and the nave roof supported by angels with gilded instruments. It is Grade I listed LinkExternal link
