In other countries cathedrals are not always on a large scale, but in England cathedrals have centred around large dioceses and attracted large legacies and other riches allowing the buildings to grow in size and splendour.
Except from the chapter-house and cloisters, the plan of a monastic cathedral is very similar to a standard cruciform shaped church.

Albans became a cathedral in 1876, at which time restorations to the west front and the north transept were carried out by Lord Grimthorpe, an amateur architect who was given a free rein due to the fact that he was paying for the work out of his own pocket.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: The Anglo-Saxon Church
In England the Saxons, after establishing themselves in the south and east, in the localities now represented by Sussex and Essex, founded a great kingdom in the West which gradually absorbed almost the whole country south of the Thames.
It is quite possible that the general prevalence in England of lay patrons with the right to present to benefices is to be traced to the fact that the parish church in so many cases originated in the private oratory of the lord of the township.
Although not much is known of the history of the missions in Sweden and Norway, it has lately been shown by such scholars as Taranger and Freisen, alike from linguistic and liturgical considerations, that the impress of the Anglo-Saxon Church is everywhere recognizable in the Christian institutions of the extreme North.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Lincoln (England)
But this was situate in the extreme corner of what was the largest diocese in England, so that the first Norman bishop, Remigius of Fécamp, decided after the Council of 1072, which ordered all bishops to fix their sees in walled towns, to build his cathedral at Lincoln, a city already ancient and populous.
In 1185 the cathedral suffered much damage in the great earthquake, and when in the following year St. Hugh was made Bishop of Lincoln he found it necessary to commence building again from the foundations.
During the fourteenth century the three towers were raised to their present height, and the cathedral attained its present form, one of the finest and most remarkable in England.

To compress thousands of years of history into a readable and I hope, entertaining few chapters is a daunting task indeed, but here at Britannia we hope to do just that.
In so doing, we can determine just what made the tiny country of England so powerful a force in world history, out of proportion to its size and population.

Even if you’re a frequent visitor to England or a postcard collector, you’ll be seeing things from an entirely new angle in this spectacular aerial footage (shot from a helicopter; you can catch the occasional shadow).
The music is pleasant and appropriate, and the narration is informative but thankfully minimal (sometimes lapsing into cuteness along the lines of 'You know, 1066 and all that.').

I thought it would be interesting to put together a list of all the great cathedrals in England.
Clifton-Taylor sums it up nicely: 'Leaving aside the parish-church cathedrals, the four modern Anglican buildings discussed in the last chapter [Truro, Liverpool, Guildford, Coventry] and all those erected since the 1830s by the Roman Catholics, England has twenty-six cathedrals, of which, very conveniently, exactly half are of the first rank.
We love the cathedrals of England and try to see as many as possible.

 Cathedrals in England - does anyone have a list?
English Heritage announced in January 2005 £1 million of grants for repairs to cathedrals (January 2005).
Here is a list of the cathedrals in England (and Wales?) It looks as if the English Heritage list includes Roman Catholic cathedrals, while most people, architecturally speaking, mean the great gothic cathedrals that are now C. of E.
