This view of the Cathedral from the north shows the cloister on the left.

This was the tallest buiding in the world until the spire on the central tower (525 feet to the pinnacle) collapsed in 1549.

The smaller spires on the western towers were removed in 1807 because they were endangering the structure.

The stalls in St Hugh's Choir are in three tiers, with stalls at the rear for canons, below them vicars choral and in the front the choristers.

The stalls date from 1365-70 and were restored in the nineteenth century.
