"The Norman architecture of the Nave of this Cathedral is singularly grand. the piers are lofty, cylindrical in form, and plain, but in appropriate harmony. Above the arches is a low Norman triforium, and still higher, the remians of a lofty clerestory of the same period, may yet be distinguished. Behind the piers represented in this view is seen part of the North Aisle, which, like the Nave itself, is also Norman. The windows in this aisle are raised high in order to clear the roof of the Cloister outside. In its perpendicular portion is a fine doorway into the west walk of the Cloister - the Monk's Entrance."

Descriptive Letterpress from the book 'Photographs of English and Scottish Scenery'
