Fan vaulting, King's College Chapel
Even to the 21st century visitor the interior of King's College Chapel is breathtaking, one can only imagine what a visitor in the 16th century would make of it. The chapel is one of the finest examples of English Perpendicular Gothic architecture; building began during the reign of Henry VI in 1446, work was interrupted by the Wars of the Roses, but recommenced during the reign of the Tutor King Henry VII, and was completed in 1515 in the reign of his son, King Henry VIII. The chapel has the largest fan vault ceiling in the world.
