Never been in, beautiful church.

Well done Tom, nice perspective again.
St.Mary must be the most common name for a church. I`ve met many on my travels - even in Wales in Monmouth and Abergavenny !
Manchester Cathedral`s official mame is "The Cathedral and Collegiate Church of St.Mary, St.Denys and St. George in Manchester."

Really nice picture of a wonderful church. It's funny in my day you never visited other churches (what a missed oportunity). I attended St Johns RC across the way, St Mary's were our hated enemy.

I've not got a religious bone in my body, yet the missus and I like visiting churches whenever we go anywhere.
Great photo.
