Wellingborough is a town in Northamptonshire, England, which houses a spectacular cathedral, St. Marys.
Designed by Sir Ninian Comper starting at the turn of the 20th century (1906), the church was finally completed in the late 1930s. He designed the building, furnishings and beautiful windows.
Comper was a Scottish architect, known as one of the last Gothic Revival practitioners. He was knighted in 1950 by king George VI before his death in 1960 at the age of 96. Comper's greatest achievement many say, was this church of St. Marys: his masterpiece.The work was paid for by 3 unmarried sisters who lived nearby. Can you imagine how proud they must have been?
