The Diocese of Manchester was created in 1847 by Queen Victoria when the collegiate church of St Mary, St George & St Denys was elevated to cathedral status. It was constructed over a period of 600 years but its main style is perpendicular Gothic. It is particularly noted for the the medieval woodcarvings of the Ripon Carvers.
