The stunning vaulting of Winchester is most striking at the confluence of the nave and transept, and it was here that I found one of the most compelling images of the project. At the crossing, there is a blend of the flat ceilings of the Norman transepts (11th century) and later Gothic (13th century) vaulting nave and quire, which look just beautiful when married with the ornate 1875 quire screens at the top and bottom edge. (It is interesting to note that the flat paneled ceilings on the transept were added in the 1820’s. Originally the roof would have been open to the rafters).
