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.
