    Hi guys,time for a new pic.Saw this building on a UK TV history programme today & thought it would make a good guess where game.It is quite a stunning pic,don't you think??
    The only clue I'm giving is that it's not in Scotland.

    That's a new one, Paul.

    That's quite a cathedral complex, indeed. I've never seen one with a large central tower like that.

    I'll start the guessing with a cathedral in France or Germany.

    I'm off to explore Google Images to see if I can find it.

    I'm just heading off to bed,so I'll leave you with a further clue.You may want to try the home of The Auld Enemy.
    If you don't know which country that is then I'm sure a google search will tell you.
    Good luck with the searching,I'll check out your posts in the morning.
    TTFN.

    Yep,this Cathedral is in England & is a well-known Cathedral in the North-East of England attracting over 600,000 visitors each year.

    Could it be the Lincoln Cathedral in North England?

    Thats actually a very good guess because i just checked out Lincoln Cathedral on the net & there are some striking similarities.
    This Cathedral is further up in North-east England & was founded in 1093 & sits high on a mound surrounded by the River Wear.
    Hope that helps.

    Yep,well done Sisland & Rosie.It certainly is Durham Cathedral on the River Wear in North-East England.It's a beautiful piece of architecture dating way back to 1093.
    It's easy to see why it attracts over 600,000 visitors each year.
    I for one would love to visit this area.
    Check out the link below(about half way down the page) for some stunning aerial pics of Durham Cathedral where you can see how the River Wear encircles this beautiful Cathedral.

    The link is:

    So the Durham Cathedral, then. I was way off, looking for a large cathedral like Chartres.
    When I was in England, I visited the York Cathedral, but never made it to Durham.
    Looks awesome.
