Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Birmingham and Midland Institute, 1896: Archaeological Section; Transactions, Excursions, and Report

England has many towers of the Romanesque or so-called Norman period. The finest of them are at Southwell Minster, Tewkesbury Abbey, and Bury St. Edmunds. Southwell Minster is the only English church with three Norman towers, and one of the few instances in which pyramid roofs may still be seen. These pyramids are only recently added but they take the place of similar ones which were removed so lately as the beginning of the present century. They have added much to the poetry and dignity of the Church; and it is much to be desired that some suitable raised roof should be added also to the central tower, instead of the contemptible 19th century parapet and pinnacles. A stone pyramid roof exists at Penmon Priory Church, Anglesey. Very picturesque pyramid roofs may be seen on the towers of the Rhineland for instance at Andernach and Coblenz, and especially at the beautiful cathedral of Limburg on the Lahn.

The Early English and Decorated periods (1200 to t 375 ad.) produced very few towers without spires: in fact the 13th and 14th centuries constitute the age of stone spires. Among the exceptions are the towers of Lincoln Cathedral. Which formerly had wooden spires, but are now covered with ¿at roofs. A more thorough exception is the central tower of Wells Cathedral. Which, though practically completed in Decorated period, seems to have had a low roof from the first.
