South-west view of Norwich cathedral, which had, according to Daniel Defoe, "a fine fabrick, and the spire steeple very high and beautiful'. The spire is the second-highest in England and can be seen on approach to the city from any direction. The cathedral was not established until the early 12th century (the Bishop's See, previously at Thetford, was moved to Norwich in 1094) and is a fairly complete example of the Romanesque style.
