Photo of Ely Cathedral


Exterior of Ely Cathedral's unique Octagon tower. The original Norman crossing tower fell down in 1322. Bishop Hotham worked with the abbey's prior and sacrist to devise a unique solution for the crossing, which was completed in 1340. The Octagon lantern is covered in lead and weighs 200 tons.
