Manchester Cathedral rood screen and organ case – Manchester

Sir George Gilbert Scott carried out work here in 1872 when he restored the wooden Rood Screen. A new parapet was added and it was made up of old fragments including one of St. George over the door. At the same time, he designed an organ case for an organ by Wadsworth of Manchester. This was damaged in 1940 during the Second World War and not replaced. He also worked on the Cheetham Chattel, as shown by his drawings.
