Bell's Cathedrals: The Cathedral Church of Carlisle C. King Eley Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
When William Rufus returned southwards after reestablishing the city of Carlisle, he left as governor a rich Norman priest named Walter. He began at once to build a church to be dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, which was to have in connection with it a college of secular canons. Walter did not however, live to see the building finished and Henry I. took it upon himself to complete the good work. It is said that his wife on one hand and his chaplain on the other, urged him to do this. By the beginning of the twelfth century (1123) he founded and endowed a priory of regular Augustinian canons making his chaplain the first prior.
