Manchester cathedral interior NW England UK
Manchester Cathedral is a medieval church in Manchester, England seat of the Bishop of Manchester. Its official name is the Cathedral and Collegiate Church of St Mary, St Denys and St George in Manchester and is located on Victoria Street in the city centre.
Although extensively refaced, restored and extended in the Victorian period, and then again following severe bomb damage in the 20th century, the main body of the cathedral largely derives from the wardenship of James Stanley (warden 1485–1506), and is in the Perpendicular Gothic style.
Stanley was also primarily responsible for commissioning the spectacular late medieval wooden furnishings, including the pulpitum, the choir stalls and the nave roof supported by angels with gilded instruments. It is one of fifteen Grade I listed buildings in Manchester. Since 2005 the Dean of the Cathedral has been the Very Reverend Rogers Govender.
