In 'The Fen and Marshland Churches' the Precentor of Ely W E Dickson notes, "the immense length of the church - 517 feet internally...Notwithstanding its great length, we are not sensible of any apparent deficiency in height. On the contrary, the tall narrow arches of the eastern and western sides of the Octagon, with the glympse of the lantern above, give the impression of great loftiness."
