Our Beatles tour took us past "Paddy's Wigwam" as it was described by our guide. I'd seen it many times since my youth when its architecture was certainly a topic of conversation. Another place to visit on our next trip.

The original abandoned plans for the Metropolitan Cathedral in Liverpool were so ambitious that it would have rivalled St Peters Basilica in Rome. However the advent of World War 2 and soaring costs lead to the 1967 version we see today by Frederick Gibberds. The...More
