Notes:

Clerestories.—Those Norman churches which were built with aisles seem all to have had clerestories. I do not know of a Norman nave with original aisles without some indication that there was a clerestory above. Norman nave clerestories remain at Sutton St. Mary, Whaplode, Walsoken (3), Steyning, Dover, st, Margaret’s at Cliffe (43), and on a less elaborate scale at Overbury. Even the chancels, when aisled, as at St. Peter’s, Northampton, Tilney All Saints, Walsoken and Ledbury, have clerestories. (p. 40)

This photograph shows the interior (inside) of the church at Cliffe, in Kent, as it was in the early 1930s.

The photographer is given in the acknowledgements as the late Mr. B. C. Clayton, and thus died before 1936, more than 70 years ago, so this image is out of copyright.
