St Davids Cathedral

Built on the site of a 6th century monastery the present cathedral at St David's, which is Britain's smallest city, is fittingly small when compared to some of its more prestigious counterparts. The cathedral measures just 90 metres in length and 35 metres in height with the widest point, the Nave, being just 22.5 metres in width. Because of its physical location photographing the whole site poses certain problems so I decided to make a photo-collage of the construction.

St Davids or St David's Cathedral
St Davids or St David's (both are correct) has been a site of pilgrimage and worship since a community was first founded in 589. The community and subsequent buildings were attacked many times over the years, especially by raiding Vikings. The oldest part of the present cathedral dates from the 12th century.

Not my favourite cathedral by any means, but one worth a visit whenever I'm in the area.
