Ely Cathedral is in Cambridgeshire in South East England. It is a magnificent medieval cathedral with a number of unique characteristics. Most of the present building was completed by 1189 in the Romanesque style, with some additions made in the 13th and 14th centuries. Ely (pronounced 'eely') was an island for most of its history, until the marshy Fens surrounding it were drained in the 18th century. The great cathedral of Ely, which still appears to float high above the flat surrounding landscape, has long been known as 'the Ship of the Fens.' There has been a religious buildings on this site since 673AD.
