St Philip's Cathedral, Birmingham: 3 reviews and 7 photos
Built in 1715 by Baroque style architect Thomas Archer, but not completed until 1725 when George I gave the parish a gift sufficient to finish the west tower. It became the cathedral for the new anglican Diocese of Birmingham only in 1905.
Burne-Jones was born in Bennett's Hill close by and was responsible for the design of the windows that are beneath the tower.
I think this is the oldest building in the city centre.
