Description

Old Sarum and The Cathedral, Salisbury, Wiltshire

The stones mark the foundations of the old cathedral. It was completed in 1190. relations between the clerics and castle guards weren't very good and in in 1219 Bishop Richard Poore decided that enough was enough, and he determined to build a new cathedral at a location several miles to the south. A settlement grew up around the site of the new cathedral, and it is this settlement that is the modern city of Salisbury
