Salisbury Cathedral is considered one of the leading examples of Early English architecture. The main body was completed in only 38 years, from 1220 to 1258. Legend has it that the Bishop of Old Sarum shot an arrow in the direction he would build the cathedral; the arrow hit a deer and the deer finally died in the place where Salisbury Cathedral is now.Salisbury is one of only three English cathedrals to lack a ring of bells, the others being Norwich Cathedral and Ely.

I'm not particulary religious but I did find Salisbury Cathedral very peaceful and wonderful, particularly the cloisters.  Plus they have an original copy of the Magna Carta on display.

Genau wie auf dem Bild war ich bei Stonehenge auch schon einmal bei Sonnenuntergang. Ich sag euch, einen Besuch ist es wert!

The 15th century Poultry Cross in Salisbury, Wiltshire    Once a market site for fruit and vegetables as well as poultry, the Poultry Cross was built in the late 15th century on the site of an earlier structure first mentioned in 1307. There were three other crosses in medieval Salisbury; for livestock, cheese and milk, and wool and yarn.

An aerial view of Old Sarum, Wiltshire, UK showing the motte and bailey castle and the remains of the Bishop's Palace. The Bishop's seat was transferred to nearby Salisbury in 1219 which gradually led to the decline of the Old Sarum site. When the settlement grew too big they needed to relocate so they decided to fire and arrow and where it landed they would build the new settlement, the arrow hit a deer and where the deer died they built Salisbury Cathedral
