View showing "the peculiar east front of the choir; with its central and side buttresses, its ten windows in different tiers, its turrets which have long lost their spires, and its circular Norman openings in the gable... The roofs of the choir-aisles were lowered, and the triforium-openings glazed, in the mastership of John de Campeden. Attached to the south transept is a vaulted chamber of inferior height, which appears to have been the ancient sacristy. A considerable portion of the exterior of the Church is plastered, showing the stone work at the angles only. It has been recommended to remove this plaster, and, as far as possible, to point and restore the walls."

Text from 'Memorials of the Hospital of St. Cross and Alms House of Noble Poverty'.
