Photographer's Note

Chichester Cathedral was founded as a cathedral in 1075, when the seat of the bishop was moved from Selsey.

Chichester Cathedral has fine architecture in both the Norman and the Gothic styles, and has been called by the architectural historian Nikolaus Pevsner "the most typical English Cathedral".

The cathedral contains rare medieval sculptures, but also some modern art, including an impressive stained glass window by Marc Chagall.

The high spire of Chichester Cathedral can be seen for many miles across the flat meadows of West Sussex and is a landmark for sailors. Chichester is the only medieval English cathedral which is visible from the sea.

This picture shows the spire from a small pedestrian lane within the cathedral grounds.
