Cloister Capitals

    Newer Older

    Of course I'm not the first person to take this shot, but I quite like this and unusually (and deliberately I'm sure) all the capitals are of different design and size.
    Whilst Paisley Abbey is ancient, it started falling down shortly before the Reformation: which scuppered any chance of restoration until the start of the last century when these and the Abbey's tower were rebuilt with the choir and chancel being restored and reconnected with the nave which had served as a kirk in the intervening years and which the restored building continues to do.

      Thanks, Jonathon, little jiggery-pokery involved; it pretty much set itself up.
