Notes NOTES: George Gilbert Scott was Surveyor to the abbey from 1849 until his death in 1878 during which time he undertook the restoration of the north front and the chapter house. His reconstruction of this rose window is deemed to be close to the 14th century original, which is thought to have been designed either by Henry of Reynes or his successor, John of Gloucester.
