Sheffield Cathedral (Catholic) (Sheffield)

St. Marie's is the Catholic cathedral serving the Yorkshire city of Sheffield.

It has a fine position in Norfolk Street, in the heart of the city centre, surrounded by shops and offices.

It was built by a prolific pair of Sheffield architects, J. G. Weightman and M. E. Hadfield, and opened in 1850, being raised to cathedral status in 1980.

There is a fine tower and spire, and a reredos by Augustus Pugin.

Above the reredos is the amazing East window designed by George Goldie and made by William Wailes. This has a thousand panes, and shows the life of the Blessed Virgin Mary, together with saints, popes, kings, angels, archangels and virgins.
