NORTH TRANSEPT OF HEREFORD AND THE LADY CHAPEL

NORTH TRANSEPT OF HEREFORD AND THE LADY CHAPEL

The Lady Chapel at Hereford was built during the time of Bishop William de Vere (1189-99), and is a fine example of Early English work. It was restored, with the rest of the building, by Sir Gilbert Scott in 1856-63. The North Transept of the cathedral (top) is built in the Decorated style. Two bishops have their tombs here, Peter de Aigueblanche, who held the see from 1240-68, and Thomas de Cantelupe. 1275-82.
