The present church dates from the 14th & 15th centuries and became a Cathedral in 1882. Of particular interest are the fine Flemish 'Thornton' Brass of 1441, the one remaining piece of medieval glass in St Margaret's Chapel, the 15th century Lantern Tower, possibly one of the most daring structures in the City, and the 19th century Chancel with its magnificent carvings that include the High Altar reredos. There is a peal of 12 bells, three of which are medieval.
