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.
Apse round vaulted with dado, built separately to the crossing; the buttresses are original and do not coincide with windows nor with possible vaults and the dado is not in sync with the window openings.
Crossing with pointed arches and rib vaults and flattened capitals like Bonnesvalyn that indicates the date, the pilasters for nave arcade were constructed independently from apse.
Apse and crossing joined
Nave arcade and west wall, and aisles later
