Artist's Description

The Cathedral Church of Christ, Sir Giles Gilbert Scott’s masterpiece, is built on St. James’ Mount and is visible from miles around: “a visible witness for God in the midst of the great city”.
.
The decision to build was taken under the leadership of Bishop Francis James Chavasse, second Bishop of Liverpool, in the summer of 1901.
.
After an open competition, a design by an unknown 22-year-old architect was chosen. In 1904 King Edward VII laid the Foundation Stone in the presence of 7,000 people. Building began at the East end and, by means of a series of temporary walls, the whole building moved towards completion.
.
In 2007 Steve Williams photographed the building before editing the image to produce a detailed and daunting view of this magnificent example of architecture. A central location provided multiple points of interest within the structure.
.
Liverpool Cathedral is also located on the same road as my house and a friend helped with the style of the photo when she explained how the building reminded her of something from Lord of the Rings.
