View of Hereford Cathedral in Hereford, western England. A church was first built on this site in the 7th century by Bishop Putta of Rochester. The church was destroyed in the 11th century sacking of Hereford and a new church was begun by Bishop Robert de Losinga. The north transept (the transept intersects the main cathedral at the point where the chancel joins the nave, creating a crucifix shaped building) was built in the 13th century by Bishop Peter Aquablana whose tomb stands inside. The north transept also houses the tomb of St Thomas Cantilupe, a 13th century Bishop who performed many healing miracles.
