Wonderful Cathedral built late 19th Century incorporating a large proportion of the earlier St Mary’s church ; wellinterpreted and stained glass windows worth a visit on their own. Just a pity the gift shop was closed 😟

Being relatively modern (Victorian) this is quite a simple interior but for me the most interesting part is the incorporation of part of the prior church of St Mary into the building on the right side.
