The Cathedral Builders of England: Open Library

"The list of the cathedrals of England which still, after the chances of 800 years, offer an impressive record of their first Builders, is a remarkable one. Durham and Norwich remain with their early fabrics almost entire: at Ely and Winchester are great bodies of the original erections after the Conquest: at Chichester and Canterbury are conspicuous specimens of eleventh-century building and of what immediately succeeded: while the many Norman abbey churches, which now have become cathedrals, such as St. Albans, Gloucester, and Peterborough, give us works of the same date and nearly of the same scale."
