Carlisle Cathedral

Interesting
The cathedral was built in the early 12C in the Norman style (all that remains of it is the truncated nave and the right arm of the transept); it was then extended over subsequent centuries. Note the 13C bay window on the façade, a fine example of Decorated-style interlacing with stained-glass windows from the 14C. The choir boasts a fine set of sculptured capitals and a remarkable ceiling decorated with stars (1360) on a blue background. In the transept, the 16C Brougham Triptych is a masterpiece of the Flemish School.
