Timeline and Costing Data (if available, in building units)


Phase 1 - 1080 - nave (a) - 103 Units

Nave arcade with only geometric patterns on imposts with rectangular crossing piers with projection for nave; the nave corners are square while the crossing is splayed and piers wider suggesting they were part of the earlier apse.

Phase 2 - 1160 - south - 50 Units

Southern chapel added with wall bases first and joint over torus and above that the uniformity in dimensions shows chapel set out at the one time with shafts for rib vaults with three small windows to east; ES1s capitals in chapel possibly the first with simple impost, and misalignments suggest they had been moved from some other place, date possibly 1130s, the others were later

Phase 3 - 1180 - north - 40 Units

North chapel walls with similar complex issues

Phase 4 - 1190 - apse - 76 Units

Apse 1-3 and raise the crossing with big caps, probably in two campaigns as the supports for the vaults in the east are part of the design while on the crossing piers they are squeezed into corners; when they demolished earlier apse, left unfinished masonry that was tidied up later.

Phase 5 - Later

Traceried widows inserted into both chapels; tidied openings from apse into chapels with drums and heavy splayed arches typical of the C17.
