The great industrial cities of Manchester and Liverpool dominate the southern band of Lancashire. Manchester's buildings range from its little-known medieval cathedral, housing some of the finest medieval wood carving in England, to imposing factories and civic and commercial monuments, among which Waterhouse's great Gothic Town Hall is the supreme example. Liverpool's two famous twentieth-century cathedrals watch over a no less proud city, whose distinctive mixture of toughness and display appear variously at the early Victorian Albert Dock, its sumptuous contemporary St George's Hall, and the great commercial parade alongside the Mersey. Towns such as Bury and Rochdale, showing the same civic endeavour on a smaller scale, stud a landscape that rises into dramatic moorland country to the east.The hall has a broad high-table bay window on a stone base and with a little ornament on the transom. Above it is a square gable containing a 13 small room. The hall itself has its spere truss complete with large tracery over and the three doorways from the screens passage to the ... The wall above the service doorways has again all quatrefoils, and the roof has wind-braces also composed in ... This dates from c.1 600, a time when the functions of these rooms must have changed.
