Title
West Tower
Caption
The great belfry at the west end dates from 1355-66 and rises 78 meters high. The tower is roughly square with rounded buttresses at the corner; each tier supported by a rounded quarter-arch and decorated with a quatrefoil railing. At the top is a newer octagonal portion (1485-92). The tower is nearly as wide as the nave, which has no side aisles.
