This is a stunning Cathedral, I’ve been in a couple times but I haven’t been in while I’ve had the camera yet, but it’s on the to do list.
Properly known as the Cathedral Church of Saint Peter, is an Anglican cathedral in the city of Exeter, Devon, in South West UK. The present building was complete by about 1400, and has several notable features, including an early set of misericords, an astronomical clock and the longest uninterrupted vaulted ceiling in England.
- It has the longest stretch of unbroken Gothic vaulting in the world.
During the Second World War the cathedral sustained a direct hit by a large high-explosive bomb on the chapel of St James, completely demolishing it.
