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 to groin vault.
East constructed in many small campaigns starting on the south side by the base of the tower; it seems as if construction was around and within the earlier apse that may have been demolished to build the aisle vaults.
East gallery and clerestory with north a little ahead of south.
Nave aisles in many campaigns with the north side built before the south, though the footings possibly laid out a lot earlier, and the relocation of the west door.
Gallery and clerestory capitals
