I came back here to visit after many years... 34 to be honest...
my memory of this Roman Catholic has not faded. It was with great excitement
I remember the opening of this new Cathedral in the 1973. As a young teenager.

Externally this building is bizarre and I find it rather ugly. Typical of it time and the fact that it’s entirely concrete. However on the inside the concrete works visually and the ceiling design is truly unusual. The soaring flat sections and sheer scale of...More
