Lichfield is the only medieval English cathedral with three spires. Starting in 1085 and continuing through the 12th century, the original wooden Saxon church was replaced by a Norman cathedral made from stone, and this was in turn replaced by the present Gothic cathedral begun in 1195. It was completed by the building of the Lady Chapel in the 1330s. Staffordshire, England

View out of Thor's Cave, Staffordshire, England. High on a limestone crag above the River Manifold a series of many chambers make up Thor's cave. You can reach it by a stairway from the Manifold track, the path follows one of the Peak District's 'disappearing' rivers, which seep deep into the cracks of the limestone.
