Mouldings in the Lady Chapel

The study of the form of stone mouldings is an important way in which the style of a gothic church can be studied. Sometimes they can be identified almost as signatures of particular master masons or schools of work. This drawing by Norman Irwin shows the form of the mouldings of the Cathedral Lady Chapel of c. 1270 - 1300.
