Phases

Phase 1 - 1190 - church (a) - 207 Units


From bases E1 and 2, then 3-8 on west wall with west door with the aisles and floor slopes to west; the imposts all same height and seem same.


Phase 2 - 1200 - nave (c) - 228 Units


Nave clerestory, 6-part decided after arcade arches; the octagonal shape could be 1210 rather than earlier, yet caps are 1200, perhaps an early use of octagon for practical reasons.


Phase 3 - 1210 - nave (v) - 187 Units


Nave vaults with plate tracery windows after east


Phase 4 - Later


Inserted arch S1-2 with C16 southern chapel, intention to open up this bay.
