Summary Record (9 February 2012)

Large, Gothic revival Episcopal church, designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott, 1853. The height of the steeple accentuates the site on the rise of Castle Hill. The Cathedral is entered by rising up three flights of steps into the interior at the base of the steeple, the interior lit through lofty stained glass windows, some by Hardman and Scott & Draper. The reredos was also designed by Scott with inset mosaic by Salviati in Venice. Raised to Cathedral staus in 1905.
