Salisbury Cathedral - 13/09/19

As part of our CCSS this week, we have been learning all about Salisbury cathedral. Here are some of the cool facts that we learnt:


  • The cathedral took 38 years to build - it was completed in 1258.
  • The cathedral has the largest cloister and cathedral close in Britain.
  • Salisbury has the tallest church spire in the United Kingdom - 123m/404ft tall
  • It contains the oldest working clock - AD 1386
  • It has the best surviving of the four original copies of the Magna Carta signed in 121
