Kitchen Splashbacks in Ely

Based in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, Splashbacks of Distinction have a real passion for toughened glass in and around the home. We have transformed many properties, both commercial and domestic with our glass splashbacks, for kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms. Our toughened glass balustrades, glass shelving and splashbacks with high resolution images have really caught the imagination of people who demand beauty and functionality in their homes and offices. We cover many areas outside of Hertfordhire too, including Ely in Cambridgeshire.

A little Ely history

Ely is a cathedral city in Cambridgeshire. Construction of the cathedral was started in 1083 by a Norman abbot. Alan of Walsinghams octagon, built over Elys nave crossing between 1322 and 1328, is considered to be the greatest individual achievement of architectural genius at Ely Cathedral. Building continued until the dissolution of the abbey in 1539 during the Reformation. The cathedral was restored between 1845 and 1870. As the seat of a diocese, Ely has long been considered a city; in 1974, city status was granted by royal charter.

Roswell Pits are a palaeontologically significant Site of Special Scientific Interest one mile northeast of Ely. The Jurassic Kimmeridge Clays were quarried in the 19th and 20th centuries for the production of pottery and for maintenance of river embankments. Many specimens of ammonites, belemnites and bivalves were found during quarrying, in addition to an almost complete specimen of a pliosaur.

There is some scattered evidence of Late Mesolithic to Bronze Age activity in Ely such as Neolithic flint tools, a Bronze Age axe and spearhead. There is slightly denser Iron Age and Roman activity with some evidence of at least seasonal occupation. For example, a possible farmstead, of the late Iron Age to early Roman period, was discovered at West Fen Road and some Roman pottery was found close to the east end of the cathedral on The Paddock. There was a Roman settlement, including a tile kiln built over an earlier Iron Age settlement, in Little Thetford, three miles to the south.

Following the accession of Mary I of England to the throne in 1553, the papacy made its first effective efforts to enforce the Pope Paul III initiated Catholic reforms in England. During this time, which became known as the Marian Persecutions, two men from Wisbech, constable William Wolsey and painter Robert Pygot, were accused of not believing that the body and blood of Christ were present in the bread and wine of the sacrament of mass. For this Christian heresy they were condemned by the bishops chancellor. On 16 October 1555 they were burnt at the stake probably on the Palace Green in front of Ely Cathedral. In 2011, a plaque recording this martyrdom event was erected on the northeast corner of Palace Green by the City of Ely Perspective. The plaque is located two inches from the pavement floor in an obscure easily missed corner.

Oliver Cromwell lived in Ely from 1636 to 1646 after inheriting a sixteenth century property, now known as Oliver Cromwells House and the position of local tax collector from his mothers brother. Cromwell was one of the governors of Thomas Parsons Charity, which dates back to 1445 and was granted a Royal Charter by Charles I of England. The Charity still provides grants and housing to deserving local applicants.
