Bradford parish church, raised to Cathedral status in 1919 and extended as such by
Sir Edward Maufe after 1945 to the east end and to the north of the west tower.

with a west tower with heavy Perpendicular detailing of 1493-1508, and destroyed
nave and aisles with battlements of circa 1430-58. Perpendicular windows. The nave
arcades however are C14, rebuilt after a fire in 1327. The Bolling Chapel south of
the original chancel had its windows altered in 1666. The transept chapels are
of 1899. The south aisle, its clerestory and porch were rebuilt in 1832-33 and again
remodelled in the restoration of the 1890's. Furnishings comprise a Maufe baldecohino
at the west end and a fine spired, late Gothic font cover. The original chancel
has very early work (1862) by Morris and Co to designs by F M Brown, Rossetti and
Burne Jones. Other glass by Kempe 1899-l900. Some fine monuments including work by
Scheemaker and Flaxman.
