Ely is a cathedral city in the East Cambridgeshire district of Cambridgeshire in the east of England.

The album cover for The Division Bell was designed by the long-time Pink Floyd collaborator Storm Thorgerson. It depicts two metal head sculptures sculpted by John Robertson, each over three metres tall and weighing 1500 kilograms. These were placed in a field in Cambridgeshire and photographed throughout a two-week period regardless of weather conditions. Sometimes visual effects such as lights between the heads was used. Ely Cathedral is visible in the background, as are lights car headlights on poles), visible through the sculptures' mouths. The sculptures are now in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio.
