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


Phase 2 - 1200 - east (a) - 25 Units

East bases over sloping floor; both chapels added while other walls only partly up, each with different vertical dimensions so that as triforium was being built in the east the aisles were being built in the west, all in many medium-sized campaigns, with the carving suggesting that one master in particular had worked here on a number of occasions.

Phase 3 - 1210 - west (a) - 57 Units

Western aisle capitals, middle triforium after a pause and in a number of small campaigns.

Phase 4 - 1220 - nave (c,v) - 30 Units

West three bays of the triforium, and west wall and high vaults; the rose is recent.

Phase 1 - Earlier

Something occupied the space on either side of the apse, leading to many of the axial anomalies and the confused erection schedule in the east.
