|Description: This is the Plan of Durham Cathedral. It is an example of English Gothic architecture. Building began in 1093 and was finished in approximately 40 years. "The square eastern termination, the less ambitious height, and the comparatively simple buttress-system, combine to give the English Gothic cathedral an air of great repose than is found in the magnificent triumphs of Frence Gothic art." The scale is in feet.|
