I haven't been to Liverpool in thirty years, so it was good to visit it again. I am afraid I liked the Cathedral even less than I did previously.
Amazingly it was designed before the Council. It just seemed so terrible dated. I am sure I am going to upset many people by saying this but it reminded but it reminded me of Franco's basilica in the Valley of the Fallen, I suppose it was the light or maybe that it seemed to lack human proportion. I discussed it with a friend a "Wee Free", he thought it was a glorious space, for me it lacked an sense of intimacy or discovery, unlike its monumental Anglican counterpart, which struck me as being something dreamed up by one of those American early 20th century multi-millionaires: grandiose but lots of nooks and crannies where a man may weep before his God.
