“Where Am I?”

Visitors are sometimes confused by which direction is which and by such terms as the “chancel,” “the transepts,” the “nave.” The illustration below can help. When facing the altar, the east side is on the left. Visitors enjoy their visit to this site more after taking time to orient themselves with the map.

A=Altar, B=Chancel, C=Crossing, D=Nave, E=Aisles, F=Vestibule, G=Arcade H=East Transept with Transepy Gallery Above, J=West Transept/Side Chapel with Transept Gallery aboce, K=Round Room
