A View of Ely Cathedral

People often ask why such a vast church
was built in such a small town.

In fact the Cathedral came first. When it was built Ely was only a small settlement, the town grew up around the Cathedral.

The Benedictine monks only concern was to glorify God, and nothing less than a building on a majestic scale would do.
