  • The exterior is of red brick.
  • The interior is expressed in sandstone from Somerset with white floors of Italian marble.
  • The interior includes works by artists such as Vernon Hill, Eric Gill, Moira Forsyth, John Hutton and John Cobbett.
  • The cathedral sits on 778 piles, sunk to a depth of 15 metres (50 feet).
  • Although started in 1936, construction was interrupted (due to the outbreak of the Second World War) for around ten years due to shortages of both money and materials until 1952; consecration was undertaken in 1961.
