Notes NOTES: The Anglican Cathedral on St James's Mount was built to a competition-winning design of 1903 by a very young Giles Gilbert Scott. It was consecrated in 1924 with the completion of the east end, but only finished in 1978. The design for the nearby Roman Catholic Metropolitan Cathedral was won in open competition by Frederick Gibberd & Partners in 1962. This cathedral was completed in less than five years and was consecrated in 1967.
