ELY CATHEDRAL, FROM THE SOUTHWEST, ENGLAND The Cathedral of Ely is one of the largest and most imposing of the many cathedrals for which Englandisfamous. With alength of520 feet and a breadth of 77 feet, it yet does not sacrifice grace for size. It was begun more than 800 years ago by the first Norman abbot. Its great castellated west tower is unlike that of any other cathedral tower in England, seeming to suggest more military than ecclesiastical architecture.
