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.
Apse and crossing with solid walls each side supporting a very domical vault
Tower capitals by the same men.
West door with caps like St Vaast-les-Mello.
Nave piers without aisles, with clerestory windows set over the piers.
South arm entrywas a different campaign to shafts and walls. And in it was built the oculus to west and opening for aisle.
Inserted something into sides of north apse, cut back projecting shafts to crossing and nave aisle walls; wooden vaulted ceiling to the nave covering the windows.
