Sheffield St Marie's Catholic Cathedral.

Hooray! It's Sheffield's Catholic Cathedral, otherwise known as St Marie's Church, which manages to be even less impressive than its nearby Anglican counterpart. Somehow you can't help feeling the city got the fuzzy end of the lollipop when it came to religious buildings.

Admittedly I've never been inside, so it might be magnificence itself in there but, given the modesty of its exterior, I suspect it isn't.

Still, at least its existence means the city can boast it has two cathedrals, which is something not every town can claim.

Nearby, in this shot, can be seen the octagonal roof of the Crucible Theatre and, beyond that, the listed monolith that is Park Hill Flats.
