Southwark Cathedral

Although Southwark is a johnny-come-lately cathedral, having been designated as such just since the start of the 20th century, its history is truly ancient, being mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. The building dates from the 13th Century. An engraving from 1616 shows how it stood prominently (and you can see the heads on spikes, too), these days it is very hemmed in.
