St. Wilfrids Church (York)

St. Wilfrid's is a Catholic church in the ancient cathedral city of York

The architect was George Goldie, a local man who was the grandson of the better known Joseph Bonomi.

It is situated in Duncombe Place, directly opposite York Minster. It was widely felt at the time to be deliberately aggressive towards the older building, but is seen today as being a complementary part of the scene.

St. Wilfrid's opened in 1864, and until 1878 was a cathedral in its own right.

There is an unusual tower with a steep hipped roof.
