St. Catherine's Chapel

The Chapel at the east end of the south aisle is dedicated to St. Catherine. In the top of the niche to the right of the altar there is a 'Catherine Wheel' carved in stone the emblem of the Saint's martyrdom.  This was the site of the original Norman tower and the outline of a massive Norman arch can still be seen in the masonry.  On the pillar behind the Dean's Stall are small Crosses probably carved by Crusader knights on their return from fighting the Saracen. The long indented slits are where they blunted the points of their swords.  The Parish Book of remembrance is kept in this Chapel.  The entrance gates are fine modern wrought-iron work.
