Salisbury Cathedral is the finest 13th Century Cathedral in Britain. Built in just 38 years from 1220 to 1258. The Cathedral was constructed to inspire and reflect the glory of God in stone and glass. Today, the cathedral remains an awe-inspiring setting for huge, majestic events, yet also a place for quiet prayer and reflection. Immortalised by Constable in his paintings, the Cathedral was more recently judged to be the Best View in Britain by Country Life magazine. Speaking about the Cathedral and its setting, Bill Bryson (Notes from a Small Island) said “There is no doubt in my mind that Salisbury Cathedral is the single most beautiful structure in England and the Close around it the most beautiful space”
Salisbury Cathedral is a magnificent example of Early English Gothic architecture. Situated in the largest and best preserved medieval Close in Britain, amidst picturesque historic buildings and ancient stone walls it is surrounded by eight acres of lawns. The main body of the Cathedral was consecrated in 1258 with the Cloisters, Chapter House and West Front all completed by 1266. The spire (the tallest in Britain, 123m/404ft), was added a generation later between 1310 and 1330.

Photography has been an obsession since I was 13 years old and went off to Italy clutching my mother’s 1940s roll film camera. I’ve been fooling with computers since I bought an Amiga 1000 back in 1985. My first chunky pixelized images were digitized into that machine using a black and white CCTV camera. At last, with today’s software and hardware I feel that I can create the images I see in my mind’s eye. Visit my website at www.PixielatedPixels.com
