Wakefield is a city in West Yorkshire, England, on the River Calder and the eastern edge of the Pennines, which had a population of around 100,000. A place called Wakefield Cathedral considered the most prominent landmark in the City, this 14th-century, 247ft Cathedral has the tallest spire in Yorkshire. Step inside to discover stained glass, medieval carvings and historic features, including unusual octagonal font dating back to 1661. The cathedral is open to visitors from 9am to 4pm Monday to Saturday and holds several services. Entrance to this beautiful cathedral is free but a donation is always appreciated. The cathedral was undergoing renovations when we visited, luckily friendly staff we on hand to answer questions and to dish out compliments on my ‘lovely jumper’. It’s always nice when the church acknowledges you as a fashion icon.
