Daily Focus #4 Southwark Cathedral

Southwark Cathedral (Cathedral and Collegiate Church of St Saviour and St Mary Overie), London. The layout and design of the church dates from the 13th century and after being destroyed by fire in the 14th century and falling into a state of disrepair, it was restored by George Gwilt jun between 1818-1832 and the nave was rebuilt by Arthur Blomfield between 1890-1897. It was then designated as a cathedral in 1905 and is Grade I listed. Photographs courtesy ahisgett and ell brown via Flickr.
