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.
East 3 bays coursed with south, designed for groin vaults.
Details show shafts for ribs added, and first group of imposts in the apse.
Second set of imposts in S2,3 as there is a join between the south shafts to entry to south chapel and the shafts to the west just where the earlier smaller chapel had been.
Third set in EN1,2 and ES1, while details show that the vaults over the imposts were built in three capaigns, one each bay.
West crossing piers and entry arch, and we could suspect an earlier and smaller nave
