Giles Gilbert Scott submitted designs in the architecture competition for the proposed Liverpool Cathedral while still a pupil (22 years old). They were accepted in 1903 – ironically Giles was a Roman Catholic; G. F. Bodley became Scott’s architectural partner on the building.

After the death of Bodley in 1907, Giles Gilbert Scott redesigned Liverpool Cathedral, creating a revered Gothic structure.

Largest Anglican cathedral in the world, the construction over many years is
reminiscent – though not as severe as Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia in Barcelona

Consecrated in 1924, it was completed in 1978.
