Nave, Choir Stalls, and Chancel



The Choir extends beyond the transept into the Nave, from which it is separated by an iron screen. In front of the Altar is a curious old mosaic pavement with tasteful arabesques brought from Rome in 1268 by Abbot Ware. The fine food work of the choir was executed in 1848.

The Organ was entirely rebuilt in 1884 and stands at the two extremities of the screen between the Choir and the Nave. [text accompanying photograph]
