Salisbury Cathedral is very large, very old and very beautiful. Its history begins about the 12th century and it was built over about 300 years. Even with modern building practices the construction of the arches and ceilings would be a challenge. In New Zealand we have a department of Occupational Safety and Health that control things like climbing ladders, building scaffolding, etc. They would be hard pressed to make safety regulations for a building like the Salisbury Cathedral.
