Southwell 25
These three views show the 'Crossing' which has a mixture of architectural designs. The main part is 12th Century Norman design leading to the north and south transepts, the roof is of Norman design but was actually rebuilt in the 19th century after a fire destroyed the original roof in 1711, the Pulpitum screen was built to Gothic design in the 14th century (1330-40) and upon the screen stands the main choir organ, the third photo is of poorer quality but shows the north transept with a bronze bust of Edwyn Hoskyns the 2nd Bishop of Southwell (from 1904-1925), the door leads through to the Pilgrims chapel
