by William the Conqueror as a prominent outpost after
the bloody and lengthy rebellion by Hereward
The Wake, Ely Cathedral stands as a fine example of
William's devotion to his Religion and to his overwhelming
victory for the Heart's and Minds of that mixed of all
races called the britons.
Less well known is that "The Lord Protector",
closed the Cathedral for 10 years, or thereabouts, due
to a falling out with the local (Catholic) Clergy. Cromwell
used it as a stable for his Calvary Horses!
