Chichester Cathedral
Chichester Cathedral is an Anglican church in Chichester, West Sussex, England. It was founded as a cathedral in 1075, when the seat of the bishop was moved from Selsey. The cathedral has architecture in both the Norman and the Gothic styles, with two architectural features that are unique among England's medieval cathedrals—a free-standing medieval bell tower (or campanile) and double aisles. The cathedral contains two rare medieval sculptures and many modern art works including tapestries, stained glass and sculpture. This westward view shows the cathedral's choir, which is separated from the nave by a pulpitum with three arched openings, called the Arundel Screen.Photograph credit: David Iliff
