Ruins of  a Chapter House

Thought to have been the ruins of the original medieval cathedral until recent years when investigations indicated that it is possibly a chapter house of the cathedral’s canons.  Located to the east of the present Cathedral, the ruins consist of two side walls with beautiful closely set lancet windows, a feature of gothic architecture introduced by the Normans.  Parts of two medieval high crosses lie within the bounds of the ruins and are fine examples of their type.  Fragments of medieval cut stone also lie in this area.
