Description

The cathedral was originally a Benedictine Priory, 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 south choir has 19th century windows with tracery, two light triforium windows, and round-headed windows in the clerestory.
