Would you like to know your stoup from your flying buttress, your squint from your fan vault or your super-transom from your foliated spandrel? This day school will unpick the architecture, impact, design and use of churches, monasteries and cathedrals in mediaeval England. Taught
partly as discussion seminars and partly via lectures, the day will culminate with a visit to the multi-phased St Peter’s Church to apply the classroom sessions to a case study of this remarkable building.
