Off the top of my head, it was started in the 12th century, and was one of the targets of German bombing during WWII. Exeter has no military strategic position, but it dates back to Roman times, when it was called Isca, so was one of the cultural targets during the war. One of the side chapels was damaged, but has been rebuilt so in keeping with the rest of the cathedral that it blends in beautifully. The cathedral alone is worth a visit to the city, but it's full of historic architecture.
That looks so cool. The clock alone would make the trip for me.
We are quicksilver, a fleeting shadow, a distant sound... our home has no boundaries beyond which we cannot pass. We live in music, in a flash of color... we live on the wind and in the sparkle of a star! Endora, Bewitched
