Salisbury is one of the finest medieval cathedrals in Britain. It is the mother church of the Salisbury
Diocese, an area which covers most of the counties of Wiltshire and Dorset.
Started in 1220 it was completed by 1258, with the Spire, the tallest in England (123 m/ 404 ft) added a
generation later. Built to reflect the glory of God in stone and glass, it has always been a setting for
great occasions, for huge colourful processions, a majestic and awe – inspiring church – as it has done for
over 775 years.
