The invaders of 1066 were prolific builders who left a legacy of over 7,000 beautiful churches.

St. John's Chapel in the Tower of London is one of the most perfectly preserved examples of Norman architecture, from around 1080.
2/6
The chapel was an integral part of the interior of the Tower of London. Its forbidding Norman exterior has been softened over the years.
3/6
Durham Cathedral, started in 1093, is the most complete Norman cathedral still standing in England.
4/6
The cathedral continues to dominate Durham like a Norman castle.

Winchester Cathedral, started in 1079, with its rounded Norman arches

6/6
