Cathedral, Wells, Somerset

The architecture of the cathedral presents a harmonious whole which is entirely Gothic and mostly in a single style, the Early English Gothic of the late 12th and early 13th centuries.

The photo shows the Gothic nave looking east, with the famous scissors arches added in 1338.
