Depicting Saint Catherine with her wheel and palm of martyrdom. The window was given by five sisters of the Hansell family "for a lifetime of happy worship in this Cathedral". The glass is by Clayton and Bell, circa 1910.
Norwich Cathedral
Norwich Cathedral is dedicated to the Holy and Undivided Trinity. The cathedral was begun in 1096 and constructed out of flint and mortar and faced with a cream-coloured Caen limestone. A Saxon settlement and two churches were demolished to make room for the buildings. The cathedral was completed in 1145 with the Norman tower still seen today topped with a wooden spire covered with lead. Several episodes of damage necessitated rebuilding of the east end and spire but since the final erection of the stone spire in 1480 there have been few fundamental alterations to the fabric. Norwich Cathedral has the second largest cloisters in Britain. The cathedral close is the largest in England and one of the largest in Europe and has more people living within it than any other close. The cathedral spire, measuring at 315 ft or 96 m, is the second tallest in England despite being partly rebuilt after being struck by lightning in 1169, which led to the building being set on fire. Measuring 461 ft or 140.5 m long and, with the transepts, 177 ft or 54 m wide at completion, Norwich Cathedral was the largest building in East Anglia. The Cathedral is a Grade I listed building.
