Notes NOTES: The rebuilding of the Minster in Gothic styles began between 1230 and 1241 with the southern wing of the transept built by Archbishop de Gray. The north transept was built slightly later by John le Romeyn and completed c.1255. The central tower in Perpendicular style was built in 1407-1423 to replace the original tower that collapsed in 1407.
