Saint Matthew’s is a grade II* listed building. It was designed by Robert Johnson and built over fifteen years from 1880. It is considered by many one to be of the finest Victorian buildings in the Northeast. It contains a goodly quantity of Kempe glass, but its greatest glory is the building itself.If you are coming to pray, the Sacrament is reserved (should you wish to be close) in the chapel directly in front of the West door.If you are looking around, please be sensitive to the needs of any who might be praying.The building is also open for Mass every day; times can be found on the Liturgy page.
