Ely Cathedral, Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom Maia Sylba April 7, 2016 BEAUTIFUL PLACES 0 Comments Ely Cathedral was built by William the Conqueror as a prominent outpost after the bloody and lengthy rebellion by Hereward the Wake. Ely Cathedral (in full, The Cathedral Church of the Holy and Undivided Trinity of Ely) is the principal church of the diocese of Ely, in Cambridgeshire, England, and the seat of the Anglican Bishop of Ely. It is known locally as “the ship of the Fens”, because of its prominent shape that towers above the surrounding flat and watery landscape.
