This is an experimental section where John James is attempting to identify the carvers though the use of common templates and/or a recognisable manners of carving. Such a large-scale analysis of all the capitals in these buildings has not been attempted before. As an ongoing enterprise that is still in its infancy, we seek your input. John believes this has the potential to increase our understanding of how they worked and to provide a more solid basis for dating than we have had.
East and south walls over footings to arches into nave aisles; if the south was higher than the north then the splay on the south plinth marks the junction.
East and south walls and chapel to vaults with capitals.
Nave aisles walls in complex campaigns before interior because did not design layout with the arrangement for the high vault in mind.
Nave aisle drums and piers for a six-part vault; height low to suit the lower aisle entries from the east; west portal.
