The structure of the cathedral is primarily in the Norman style, having been constructed at the behest of Bishop Herbert de Losinga between the late 11th century and about 1145. The total length of the building is 461 feet (140 m). Significant alterations from later periods include a 315 foot (96 m) spire completed in 1465, and a two-storey cloister, the only such in England, which was built between 1300 and 1430, as well as the vaults of nave and chancel.
The cathedral is built of flint and mortar faced with limestone brought in from Caen. Standing at 315 feet, the cathedral’s spire is the second tallest in England, and dominates the city skyline; only the spire of Salisbury Cathedral is higher at 404 feet. Like Salisbury and Ely, the cathedral lacks a ring of bells – the only three English cathedrals to do so. One of the best views of the cathedral spire is from St. James’s Hill on Mousehold Heath.
