Rising Above the Rooftops

The tall towers (and even part of the huge facade) of Lincoln Cathedral rise above the surrounding rooftops. View from northwest. The central tower was rebuilt around 1240 and raised to its present height in 1311; the twin west towers were built in the early 13th century and raised at the end of the 14th century. Lincoln, England.
