"St Philip's Cathedral" Top 5 Page for this destination St Philip's Cathedral Tip by Galahad

  St Philip's Cathedral 16.4.05
by Galahad
 
 

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.
