Notes NOTES: The nave was rebuilt in Perpendicular in 1377-1405 to designs by Henry Yevele, the King's master mason. The south-west tower was rebuilt by Thomas Mapilton between 1424 and 1434. The original Romanesque north-west tower remained until 1832 when it was demolished and replaced by a matching replica of Mapilton's tower.
