    Norwich Cathedral
    Norwich Cathedral is a magnificent Norman building set in the largest close in England.

    The construction work on the cathedral began in 1096 under the Norman bishop Herbert de Losinga, but he did not see the cathedral finished before he died in 1119. His successors continued the work on the incomplete nave and central tower.

    The cathedral spire is the second tallest in England, and the cloisters are the largest monastic cloisters in the country.

    The nave roof bosses, illustrating the Bible from Creation to the Day of Judgement, and the Saxon Bishop's throne in the eastern apse, are unique features.

    The cathedral is built of flint rubble and mortar faced with limestone ashlar, imported from Caen in France (the lighter, smoother stone) and from Barnack in Northamptonshire (greyer, fossil-filled stone).

    The ground plan is almost unchanged from the Romanesque original, with fourteen bays making up an unusually long aisle.
