Ely Cathedral – “the ship of the Fens”

Ely Cathedral, in the east of England, is a classic of Norman, Decorative Gothic, Romanesque and Romanesque architecture. 

The cathedral has its origins in AD 672 when St Etheldreda built an abbey church. The present building dates back to 1083, and cathedral status was granted it in 1109.

It is known as “the ship of the fens” because, in the mists that often cover the low lying ground around it, the majestic building can stand above them like a ship on the sea.

While we have your attention, we would like to remind you of our Emergency Ukraine Appeal

While BILLIONS of Dollars pours into western Ukraine, the beleaguered people in the east have been forgotten and abandoned to starve or freeze to death. WE WILL NOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN! In conjunction with our brethren on the ground in the area I am asking you to dig deep and send your immediate financial support (as best you can) to our EMERGENCY UKRAINE WAR APPEAL!
