Notes:
The church was built entirely in the Perpendicular Gothic style between 1458 and 1468. Mackintosh's interest in drawing the rood-loft stair turret may have arisen from the depressed-ogee form of its roof, a feature which was favoured by several architects, including Mackintosh, at the turn of the 19th -century. At bottom left Mackiintosh has depicted the upper and lower string courses.
