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.
Something occupied the space on either side of the apse, leading to many of the axial anomalies and the confused erection schedule in the east.
East bases over sloping floor; both chapels added while other walls only partly up, each with different vertical dimensions so that as triforium was being built in the east the aisles were being built in the west, all in many medium-sized campaigns, with the carving suggesting that one master in particular had worked here on a number of occasions.
Western aisle capitals, middle triforium after a pause and in a number of small campaigns.
West three bays of the triforium, and west wall and high vaults; the rose is recent.
