This is Lincoln Cathedral in my hometown.
It's a huge cathedral, and was once the tallest building in the world from 1300-1549, until the central spire fell down.
The Cathedral sits upon a hill looking down over the city and the flat fenlands of Lincolnshire. H.V. Morton describes it akin to an inland St. Michael's Mount, looking over the great sea of the Lincolnshire Plain and I can see the comparison.
Anyway, Lincoln Cathedral:







(All above from http://www.wwowens.com/Lincoln_Cathedral.htm)
