Norwich Protestant Cathedral, Norfolk

Full dedication: Cathedral Church of the Holy and Undivided Trinity
Became a Cathedral in 1096

Two cathedrals pre-dated this one in Norwich - one in Dunwich was lost to the sea, the other at North Elmham is now a ruin. The Normans moved the See to Norwich and in 1096 construction was begun on Norwich Cathedral.

Norwich has the tallest Romanesque tower in England and the second highest spire after Salisbury. The nave is longer than Ely Cathedral and it has the oldest Bishop's Throne in England.

In more modern terms it also has the grave of Edith Cavell, the nurse shot by the Nazis in World War I.

Despite this wealth of special features, Norwich is one of England's less visited Cathedrals.
