Salisbury Cathedral

Old Sarum Cathedral was a Norman cathedral built at Old Sarum, near modern day Salisbury, Wiltshire.

At its greatest, the Norman cathedral was 185 fee (56 metres) from end to end. Built in the standard cruciform shape, the building had a nave of seven bays with cross shaped piers, an apse and a central crossing tower, as well as several peripheral chapels.

The site at Old Sarum was exposed and had a limited water supply. After a dispute between the clergy and military officials at the nearby castle, Bishop Richard Poore decided to move location. An official mandate for its destruction was given by the king and the move began in 1219. Stone from the old cathedral was used in building the new, and in 1220 the new site was consecrated.
