Explore the Cathedral

On entering the Cathedral, the visitor should stand for a few moments at the west end and as we looks eastward, we will have before us an unbroken view of the whole length and we will be able to experience something of the “feel” of the building. For many concrete is not the most lovable of materials but the architect has achieved beauty and loveliness in the new medium. This lies chiefly in the airy, light and lofty spaciousness of The Nave. The interior would certainly have delighted the heart of Bishop Danson, for in 1919, he wrote of his dream Cathedral in these terms:

“The Basilian style of architecture seems to be the most suited for this part of the world, on account of its wide arches and airy spaces.”
