Surveyed: 1977, 1992-98, 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.

Tower III to imposts, with some work on the arches; there would have been an incompleted section on the eastern side, closest to the road and therefore probably where the crane had been erected
North wall of nave, at least along the bases
Tower III completion with the remaining columns, arches, and walls over them to the cornice
