The stone vaulting above the Abbey's Chancel dates from the early 1500s. It was built by Master architects Robert and William Vertue and is considered one of the finest example of fan vaulting in the country. When the Abbey was restored in the 17th century work to the vaulting over the choir was paid for by the citizens and inhabitants of Bath. Their names were recorded at the time in the Abbey's Book of Benefactors.
