NOTES: The rebuilding of the Minster in Gothic styles began between 1230 and 1241 with the southern wing of the transept, built by Archbishop de Gray. The north transept was built slightly later by John le Romeyn and completed c.1255. The clock's movement dates from 1749 while the clockface is by George Frederick Bodley and dates from 1883. The two oak men-at-arms, Gog and Magog, which strike the quarters are of 1528.
