Carlisle Cathedral

Carlisle Cathedral

Carlisle Cathedral was founded in 1122 as a priory and became a cathedral in 1132.

A daily service has been held here every day for 900 years.

It has a magnificent high ceiling with a beautiful blue background and gold plated stars.

In addition to the barrel-vaulted roof, other notable features are the 15th-century carved choir stalls and dramatic 14th-century East Window.

There’s also a Brougham Trypitch altarpiece from the 16th century which was made in Amsterdam.
