Salisbury Cathedral Xmas Day. Salisbury. Wilts. England

The cathedral, apart from its inherent beauty, is notable for having one of the 4 originals of Magna Carta and a medieval clock reputed to be the world's oldest working clock, dating from 1386. It has no face but strikes the bell every 15 minutes. Problems with the additional weight of the spire, 6500 tonnes, were solved by reinforcements designed and installed by Sir Christopher Wren, architect of St Paul's cathedral in London.
