Artist's Description

Liverpool Cathedral is the Church of England cathedral of the Diocese of Liverpool, built on St James’s Mount in Liverpool and is the seat of the Bishop of Liverpool. Its official name is the Cathedral Church of Christ in Liverpool but it is dedicated to Christ and the Blessed Virgin. The total external length of the building, including the Lady Chapel, is 189 metres (620 ft) making it the second longest cathedral in the world; its internal length is 146 metres (479 ft). In terms of overall volume, Liverpool Cathedral ranks as the fifth-largest cathedral in the world

The Cathedral’s official website gives the dimensions of the building as

Length: 188.7 metres (619 ft)
Area: 9,687.4 square metres (104,274 sq ft)
Height of tower: 100.8 metres (331 ft)
Choir vault: 35.3 metres (116 ft)
Nave vault: 36.5 metres (120 ft)
Under tower vault: 53.3 metres (175 ft)

The cathedral was built mainly of local sandstone quarried from the South Liverpool suburb of Woolton. The last sections (The Well of the Cathedral at the west end in the 1960s and 1970s) used the closest matching sandstone that could be found from other NW quarries once the supply from Woolton had been exhausted.

The belltower is the largest, and also one of the tallest, in the world (see List of tallest churches in the world). It houses the world’s highest (67 m (220 ft)) and heaviest (31 UK tons; 31.5 tonnes) ringing peal of bells.46
