Tour the Winchester Cathedral
by David Nash Ford BA, Editor, History on Britannia
The entire nave of Winchester Cathedral was re-vaulted by William of Wykeham when he had this area of the building remodeled< in the late
14th century. The pattern is a highly complicated version of Lierne vaulting and the bosses are well worth close examination (with
binoculars!). If you take the Tower Tour around the cathedral rooftops you can actually walk through the roof-space above the vaults!
