End view of St Mary's Church in Thornton-in-Craven, in the West Riding of Yorkshire. The west tower of this small parish church is in the Gothic Perpendicular style and the nave and chancel are not separated off.
The Gothic style (12th-16th centuries) is characterised by strong vertical lines, high vaulted ceilings, pointed window and door openings and buttressed walls, and falls between the Romanesque and Renaissance periods. Gothic Perpendicular (1375-1540) is further marked by the use of horizontal and perpendicular lines.
