Description

The cathedral church was originally part of a Benedictine Priory and refounded as a cathedral in 1541. The main body was built between 1093 and 1130, with alterations and additions made in the 13th and 15th centuries.

The north cloister has eleven buttressed bays, with short walls and three-light opening with tracery. The roof is flat and timber, and has ribs in a square pattern.
