Description

Salisbury Cathedral was built, with the exception of its towering spire, within one generation (1220-1238). The rapidity of its construction made it England's only cathedral to built wholly within a single style. This view of the nave shows the ornamentation of the interior entirely in the Early English Gothic style.
