The North Transept


North Transept Clerestory

In this part of the church, as in the South Transept, can be found the only remaining high level square-headed clerestory windows which were added during the early Tudor period (late 1400s) and removed from the Nave and Chancel as part of the 1860s remodelling by Ewan Christian.



The North Transept is originally Norman (11th/12th Century) but has subsequently
been substantially altered. Today it forms part of the Lady Chapel.

The transept opens into the tower space
(bell ringing chamber) through a transitional Norman arch above which are two arches which form part of the arcading in the bell rining chamber - they can just be made out in the photograph (right)
