Abstract :
In the context of greater church architecture of the first half of the 13th c. Southwell choir represents a particular type of elevation. It is linked by the elevation to a group of buildings in the west of England with integrated upper storeys. The choir of Pershore Abbey and the transepts of Lichfield Cathedral in their original 13th c. appearance emerge as the most important parallels for Southwell. The east end of Worcester Cathedral however is distinct from the West Country group in this aspect. Developments towards integrated as well as two-storeyed elevations can also be witnessed in continental Gothic architecture. ;
