CHICHESTER CATHEDRAL

Sussex

Chichester Cathedral, Sussex

Full dedication: Cathedral Church of the Holy Trinity
Became a Cathedral in 1070

Chichester was constructed as a Cathedral around 1070 when the see was transferred from Selsey.  It is largely a Norman building, but with various additions and amendments in the ensuing centuries.

One of Chichester's more interesting features is the unique detached medieval bell tower (the only one in Britain).  Otherwise Chichester is not particularly distinctive, not as massively dominating as Canterbury or Durham, but not as strikingly simple as Rochester, all of which are of a similar age.
