Much of the original Norman 11th century building survives in the present Abbey church, notably the short thick piers in the eastern half of the nave and the remnants of the original transepts. The Nave is 123 feet long.

This aisle is Norman but the windows are 19th century.Although the Nave and Aisles survive from the original Norman building the current abbey church is much smaller than the original.

This shows the Quire and Chancel. During the 19th century there were major restoration projects to restore the clerestory and the east end of the church was redesigned by John Loughborough Pearson to contain a chancel and sanctuary.
