CDR-1100: SR-Set: English Cathedrals

English cathedrals are distinguished by their architectural diversity: from largely Norman Durham; Early English Salisbury; the Decorated style of the west fronts of York and Lichfield; to the Perpendicular cloister fan-vaulting at Gloucester. Their architecture is also diverse within individual buildings as at Canterbury with its Norman crypt and Perpendicular nave. Of all these buildings only Salisbury maintains a largely consistent stylistic unity throughout. Notable individual architectural details include the magnificent scissors arch at Wells, the Angel Choir at Lincoln, ornate bosses at Norwich, and the original wooden ceiling of the nave at Peterborough. 4/09
