Artist's Description

An English Heritage Listed Structure

The 14th century choir with its fine wooden barrel vault roof and the magnificent East window in Carlisle Cathedral in the Northern city of Carlisle, Cumbria, England.

In 1856 the wooden barrel vault roof was restored and repainted to a new design by Owen Jones. It is thought the eastern bays of the cathedral never received a stone vault because at some point the central spire blew down, and funds were required to rebuild the damaged tower and north transept, completed about 1420.

The most significant architectural feature of Carlisle Cathedral is its East Window. The tracery of this window is in the most complex of English Gothic styles, Flowing Decorated Gothic. It is the largest and most complex such window in England, being 51 feet high and 26 feet wide. It has nine lights, and tracery, which, it has been calculated, was drafted from 263 points. The tracery of the window still contains much of its original medieval glass.

Carlisle Cathedral precinct is an English Heritage Scheduled Ancient Monument.
