Reputed to be the largest cathedral in the world. This is one of the most beautiful buildings in Liverpool. The cathedrals massive tower stands majestically over the city.

     
St Luke's church, on the corner of Leece Street and Berry Street (known locally as 'the bombed out church'), was gutted by fire. Unlike other damaged buildings it was not repaired or rebuilt, and today stands as a memorial to those who lost their lives during the war.

Construction of the church began on April 9, 1811, and it was consecrated on January 12, 1831.

On Monday May 5, 1941 St Luke's was hit by an incendiary bomb and was burnt out. Today it still stands as a burnt out shell, its church yard is a public park. A memorial to the dead of the Irish famine has been added to the grounds recently.
