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 Five Sisters Window, completed in 1260, contains the largest amount of Early English 'grisaille' glass in a single window, anywhere in the world.
