Salisbury Cathedral

Nikolaos Pevsner called Salisbury Cathedral ‘the purest major E.E. [Early English] building in the country’.  I found it rather formal and austere (too perfect?) and lacking the sense of evolving with the centuries, an architectural palimpsest incompletely scraped clean from one age to the next, that other cathedrals have.  But no doubt it is very fine and I had the disadvantage of seeing it on a cold, dull day.
