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.
The Cathedral Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Lincoln. Seat of the Bishop of Lincoln, Church of England. Built from 1088 and continued throughout the medieval period. Tallest building in the world for 238 years (1311-1549). John Ruskin declared: "I have always held... that the cathedral of Lincoln is out and out the most precious piece of architecture in the British Isles."
