Abstract :
The Romanesque east end of Southwell Minster was built by order of Archbishop Thomas, ca.1109, and replaced by order of Walter de Grey, ca.1234. Nineteenth-century excavations reveal a plan of two bays with apsidal aisles and a rectilinear eastern termination with corner turrets. The interior had a three storey elevation which matched the nave in general configuration but differed in specific proportions. The main span was wood-roofed, with groin-vaulted aisles. The decoration was similar to, but probably somewhat simpler than, that presently seen in the nave. Knowledge of Southwell's Norman choir can be constructed from three sources : documentary evidence, 19th c. excavations, and surviving masonry. ;
