Carlisle Cathedral

  • Description

    It was founded as a Norman Priory Church by King Henty I in 1122. It became a cathedral when the King created the diocese of Carlisle in 1133. Parts of the nave had to be rebuilt after being destroyed by the Scots in the 17th century. A substantial restoration of the cathedral was carried out from 1853-7 by Ewan Christian. It is a Grade I listed building.
