Ely, in Cambridgeshire, is a cathedral city located roughly 15 miles to the north east of Cambridge. Construction of Ely Cathedral began in 1083 by the first Norman Bishop, Simeon. Construction of the cathedral continued until the dissolution of the abbey in 1539 during the Reformation. Under the guidance of George Gilbert Scott the cathedral was restored between 1845 and 1870.
The city has two Sites of Special Scientific Interest: a former Kimmeridge Clay quarry and one of the United Kingdom's best remaining examples of medieval ridge and furrow agriculture. Agriculture remains the region's main economy but the city had been the centre of local pottery production from the 12th century to 1860.
