Lichfield, Staffordshire, is the only medieval English cathedral with three spires. Starting in 1085 and continuing through the 12th century, the original wooden Saxon church was replaced by a Norman cathedral made from stone, and this was in turn replaced by the present Gothic cathedral begun in 1195. It was completed by the building of the Lady Chapel in the 1330s.
