For the most part, the quire of Hereford Cathedral remains unchanged from its original Norman design (1079-1148). Only the ceiling, the clerestory and early English Windows above the altar, and the pillar beyond the far archway, are of a later design. I have always loved the solidity of Norman architecture, and there was no other cathedral in which I felt this more than in Hereford, seeing the massive columns supporting the curved arches.
