Sheffield Cathedral (Sheffield)

The Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul is the Anglican catedral serving the major city of Sheffield in Yorkshire.

Originally a parish church, it was elevated to the status of cathedral when the see was founded in 1914.

It is situated in the city centre, with trams running by in the street outside.

The chancel and central tower, with its spire, remain from the mediaeval church.

The nave and aisles were rebuilt in the early 19th century, while the transepts were rebuilt and the nave extended at the end of the 19th century.

The Shrewsbury Chapel contains the monument to the fourth Earl of Shrewsbury, custodian of Mary Queen of Scots.
