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.
Crossing and tower base to the south, rib vault with facet profiles, no caps.
North with same unaccented and non-capital vault as the crossing
Crossing vaulted within existing walls, raised height of openings
East with dado, and tas-de-charge in vault, at least four campaigns.
