(Aisne, France)
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.
Crossing with buttresses and probably an apse, and the nave may have been added onto that with small windows to the north (uncertain date)

Nave arches inserted for northern aisle that break into the smaller windows of a possible earlier nave, though the coursing does not give a clear picture.
