but the anglican cathedral is actually the younger of the two cathedrals.

No your wrong there m8, not only is it fact that the anglican is older, you only have to look at the both of them to see which is the more modern one. Go back to your history books.

Ah... in a way, you're both right. Work on the Anglican Cathedral began in 1931, well before the current Catholic one, which was only commissioned in 1960. However, the Catholic one was completed in 1967 and the Anglican followed in 1978. So while it's true to say that the Anglican one is 'older', the Catholic one was officially opened first.

And just to clarify this, I've added a footnote to the entry explaining the rather confusing history of the two current cathedrals.

Work on the Anglican cathedral began before 1931 because St Peter's Church,former Parish Church designated pro-Cathedral when Liverpool became a diocese in 1880 closed in 1919 and was demolished in 1922 because the anglican Cathedral was ready to use.smiley - smiley
