Surveyed: 1980-83, 2015
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.
Nave clerestory, openings to one side of 3rd bay and with large window to the west; the shafts on the face stop at clerestory window sills.
Tower base and tower I, square changed to octagon above caps
