Newcastle-upon-Tyne Catholic Cathedral, Northumberland

Full dedication: Cathedral Church of St. Mary
Became a Cathedral in 1844

Newcastle is one of those rare English cities where the Catholic Cathedral came first. The design, almost inevitably by Augustus Welby Pugin is very traditional and the work was completed after just 3 years in 1844. Only the spire was finished later.

By 1860 the whole was completed some 22 years before the Anglican See was created in the much older church across the City.
