Quick Reference

The diocese was created by the transfer of the see from Selsey under the terms of the Council of London (1075), and is roughly conterminous with Sussex. The cathedral, built between c.1091 and 1305, is Norman in origin, but was largely rebuilt between 1191 and 1210 in a style reminiscent of Canterbury.
