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 face of round apse becomes flattened above 6th course and returns to round above the window while the lateral chapels remain round all the way, maybe with a little flattening.
East vaults and crossing built with lower tower.
Nave arcade only, of 2 bays intending to build one more as on the south.
West wall added to cap the nave.
