Beautiful Cathedral, built in the 19th century. An adoration chapel is hidden away and accessed to the back of the building. Though it is a large structure, the heating system manages to heat the building to a certain level of warmth, year round. Certainly a building to be admired, given its architecture, beautiful stained glass windows and mosaics. The detailed tiling that is found throughout the cathedral is indicative of the craftsmen attention to detail, during the cathedrals early years. Much to be admired and a lot of maintenance, to ensure its survival into the future.
Good view in front of the river...near to bus stop n shopping street
