A Parish Church stood on the site of the present cathedral in very early days. At the time of the Conquest, it was a building in the form of a cross, the re-erection of the church in the Decorated style, the work being completed at the beginning of the fourteenth century, The older portion of the church as it now stands was completed in 1458. Since becoming a diocese in 1888, considerable extensions have been carried out, and now the building presents a handsome appearance from its own beauty, in addition to its magnificent situation. The spire reaches a height of 247 feet.
