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 east end consists of a nine-bay chapel divided into three sections. The north sextions is flaned by a wide buttress and a square base for a corner turret, with two slim buttresses dividing the bays.
