Blackburn Cathedral (2)
Blackburn Cathedral (2)
This photo shows the cathedral with the close in front of it. This site has been home to a church for over a thousand years and the first stone church was built there in Norman times. The parish church which was built in 1826, now forms the cathedral's nave. Since it became a cathedral in 1926, the church was enlarged during the 1950s and early 1960s. The lantern tower, which consists of 56 different panes of coloured glass, with a modernist slender aluminium spire, was completed in 1967. In 1977, the cathedral was finally completed and consecrated as Blackburn Cathedral in the same year.
