Description:Photograph by Roger Stalley. View of the south-west crossing pier. Diamond-shaped in plan, the pier has large filleted shafts and bases with elongated bells on the diagonal face. Moulding style is similar to fourteenth-century work in the south transept suggesting they were constructed concurrently. Substantial form of the pier suggests it was required to support a central tower.
