The Cathedral Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Lincoln
The Cathedral Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Lincoln
The central tower. In the 14th Century the central tower and those of the West end were heightened, and all had spires. In 1549 the spire on the central tower blew down. Up until then, Lincoln Cathedral had reputedly been the tallest building in the world. At 525 feet, that put the spire 3 foot higher than the Great Pyramid.
