Sheffield Cathedral, Sheffield (must see)

Sheffield Cathedral is one of five Grade I listed buildings in the city, along with Town Hall, Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet, and the parish churches at Ecclesfield and Bradfield. It is located in the city centre on Church Street and served by Sheffield Supertram's Cathedral stop. The East end of the current church is the oldest. In the east wall of the sanctuary there are stones from the 13th century church. Dating from the 15th century are the sanctuary and chancel. The pipe organ by N. P. Mander Ltd. was decommissioned in 1998 with a view to a long term replacement with another pipe organ. In the interim, a digital organ by Phoenix Organs is being used. In 2008 negotiations were undertaken with Warrington Borough Council to purchase their Cavaillé-Coll organ from the Parr Hall.The cathedral has 13 bells hung for change ringing, including a flat sixth bell. The bells are rung regularly for practice on a Thursday and for Sunday services, both in the morning and the evening.
