  • The central tower comprises a core of 600,000 bricks faced externally and internally with mainly "Barnack" stone, the best English limestone of the middle ages.
  • Cited in Simon Jenkins' 'England's Thousand Best Churches'.
  • The interior features a hammerbeam roof.
  • The interior boasts one of the largest naves in England.
  • The 45.7m (150ft) gothic Millennium Tower was completed in 2005 by master stonemasons, finally completing the cathedral 1,000 years after work began.
  • In 1994, Mr Dykes Bower died and bequeathed £2m for the construction of a central tower to complete the cathedral. A further £5.15m was granted by the Millennium Commission and the remaining funds were donated by members of the public.
