Sheffield Catholic Cathedral, West Riding of Yorkshire

Full dedication: Cathedral Church of St. Marie
Became a Cathedral in 1980

Sheffield is blessed with two superb spired Cathedrals which look remarkably similar from the outside (see Protestant Cathedral). This building was started in the 1840s to a design by Matthew Hadfield, using money provided by the Dukes of Norfolk (see also Arundel).

It became a Cathedral only very recently, in 1980, before that it functioned as parish church for the area.
