A sight few people get to see: the Cathedral after lock-up. A few shots taken this evening in the wonderful natural light. The lack of electric lighting dramatically alters the Cathedral's atmosphere.
Much of the light is filtered through the spectacular 'Te Deum' window at the west end of the church (pictured below). The evening light is wonderful - not exactly the brilliant shining of the Transfiguration (today's feast), but still giving a warm glow to much of the building.
is the mother church of the Catholic Diocese of Lancaster, which stretches from Preston to the Scottish border. The Cathedral acts as a focal point for the diocese, as well as being home to a vibrant parish community. It also hosts a number of concerts and cultural events throughout the year.
