Because a majority of the complex was built in a mere 40 years, there is a great sense of unity in style and details. The Chapter House contains the Carta Magna and the cloister is the largest in England. "60,000 tons of Chilmark Stone and 10,000 tons of Purbeck Stone were used to build the Cathedral 28,000 tons of oak were used to construct the roof 420 tons of lead covering 4 acres were used on the roof Britain's tallest spire (123m/404ft) was built between AD1310-1333 adding another 6,500 tons The spire now leans 69.85cm (27.5ins) to the south and 44.44cm (17.5ins) to the west" --
