Originally, Salisbury Cathedral was built in Old Sarum. However, since the cathedral was destroyed by a lightning it was rebuilt here in Salisbury. The underlying reason was that it was a response to deteriorating relations between the clergy and the military at Old Sarum. Legend has it that the Bishop of Old Sarum shot an arrow in the direction he would build the cathedral, the arrow hit a deer and the deer finally died in the place where Salisbury Cathedral is now. The foundation stone was laid on 28 April 1220
