Scope and Content Western entrance of St Andrew's Cathedral Church, Fife St Andrew's Cathedral Church and Augustinian priory were begun in the town of St Andrews by Bishop Arnold and King Malcolm IV in 1160 or 1161 and, being constructed on a scale unrivalled anywhere in Britain except at Norwich, took at least half a century to complete. The west end was rebuilt in the 1270s after a tempest. To the right of the door are traces of a support for a vaulted porch removed after fire-damage in the 14th century. Framed by the doorway is the east end of the church, over 100m away. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
