Day Two Hundred Sixty-Nine

UK GB-168024 received 09-17-2010

From: England, United Kingdom
ID number: GB-168024
Notes: Exeter Cathedral is located in the city of Exeter (big surprise there) in south west England.  The building was completed around the year 1400, and it features the longest uninterrupted vaulted ceiling in England, at around 315 feet (96 m) long.  The cathedral also features an astronomical clock, which dates from about 1484, and is thought to be the inspiration for the nursery rhyme "Hickory Dickory Dock".
