Bangor, St Deniol's Cathedral 1906

More about this scene


Caption for Bangor, St Deniol's Cathedral 1906: The first monastic settlement was founded here by St Deniol in AD525, some 70 years before St Augustine arrived in Canterbury. The site was much fought over by the Vikings, the Normans and the Welsh, so that the cathedral has been rebuilt on several occasions. The cathedral is modest in size and squats in a hollow. The nave with its six arches and the western tower were built in the early years of the 16th century. It was restored by Gilbert Scott between 1866 and 1875.
