St. Mary's Cathedral..



Don't you love it when you come across a different view of a building you've seen many times before. Last weekend I saw this view of St. Mary's Cathedral on the hill rising above construction work happening on Hay Street. Rounding onto Victoria St. below this view of the new curved expansion completed in 2009. If you check the above link in the '1999 to present' building phase you will read that there can often be 'unexpected' finds under the floorboards when an old church building is being restored.. go on you know you have to see what was under there now :)


The shot below taken from the steps of St. Mary's Cathedral looking back to the church administration building (heritage) and the city.. Hope you're having a good weekend, happy Sunday, take care and stay safe...

  3. Beautiful church and as Sylvia said the blue skies are beautiful too. All we have is gray and rain. That keeps us green though.

  4. That is a beautiful building...been a long time coming. I wonder if those dead bishops turned over in their graves a few times during the down times? :)

  10. The modern extension to the church works quite well. Dead bishops under the floorboards sounds a little macabre.

    Oh, and I've not gotten back to blogging because I'm still playing mechanic.

  15. Oh, I see, just like the Monty Python dead bishop sketch. Or was it a parrot?

  18. That's a fine building and I like the modern extensions which seem to blend in nicely. English churches often have dead clergy under the floor, though we usually have the decency to put a slab of stone on top.

  24. The cathedral is a grand and impressive building. Not often you see a two or more toned facade on a cathedral.

  25. Great building Grace, I'll be checking under my floorboards just in case...
