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.
Tower base and crossing
Tower I and II, spire could be from this period but with surrounding base with gargoyles that suggests a later time.
Nave arcade and west portal
Nave clerestory, probably built with the nave walls.
