Truro Cathedral

The lovely cathedral in Truro, Cornwall was built in the Gothic Revival style with work starting in 1880. I t was the first cathedral to be built in England since 1220. It was designed by John Pearson and has three spires, the highest being 250 feet. The central tower was finished in 1905 and the two western towers completed the construction in 1910.
