Winchester Cathedral has the longest nave of any Gothic cathedral in Europe. Originally built with a flat ceiling (1079-1120), the entire nave was remodeled from 1345-1404 to match the perpendicular style of the day (in fact, only eight columns were recut - the other columns were slimmed down and re-clad with stone to change the style). It was at this time (~1394) that the current elaborately vaulted ceiling was added to the nave.
