This graceful wall tapestry has been woven on a Jacquard loom by Master Flemish weavers. The last phase of English Gothic architecture is the Perpendicular period, which lasted from 1350 to 1550. It was characterised by vertical lines with regular & rectilinear shapes & elaborate vaulting including lierne, stellar & the lace-like fan-vaulting. This 1503 example comes from the centre of the florid fan-vaulting of Bell Harry Tower at Canterbury Cathedral. Architect John Wastell, who went on to work on King's College Chapel, Cambridge. He uses four quadrants surrounding a Greek cross together with the coats of arms of the royal & archiepiscopal patrons & devices of prior Thomas Goldstone to kaleidoscopic effect. The central circle is a trap door through which bricks & any other items can be hauled up to the top-half of the Tower by a large wooden treadmill.
