The close partnership between church and state in the 11th century obviated the construction of a cathedral close to the royal castle. One hundred fifty years laterKing John was excommunicated for a while by the Pope. The clergy had for a while wanted to enlarge the cathedral in any case and chose property of the Bishop's own to construct a new market town called Salisbury. The Cathedral at Salisbury was begun in 1220 and the one you see here was allowed to fall into decline.
