Not a patch on Durham Cathedral...Surely God can rebuild it..lolololololololl...i'm a comedian!!!!
Durham Cathedral is a stupendously wonderful building, rising up on its mount out of the river as if part of nature that has been there forever. Few buildings can match cathedrals - Liverpool's Anglican is possibly the best building in the country. I doubt that a fire could do it much harm.
Architectural style is very important, ugly surroundings make ugly people. Buildings of the past were built to blend into, enhance and frame their natural surroundings. Churches and their associated buildings and precincts are the most beautiful and welcoming places that exist in any country. The loss of religion has lost us all this. Now we have purely functional, cheap buildings of metal tubes and glass which only uglify their situation.
What great buildings has the loony left given us, or the E.U. for that matter?
