NOTES: A Benedictine abbey was established on this site in the 10th century and it has been the coronation church of English monarchs since 1066. Construction on the present church began in 1245. Henry Yevele was the master mason of the new nave, which was completed in the 1390s. The last major additions to the abbey were the towers on the west front by Christopher Wren, Nicholas Hawksmoor and John James, completed in 1745.
