Abstract

Eight timbers were sampled within the tower and five timbers were sampled in the bellframe. The timbers used in both structures were derived from relatively fast-grown oak trees. None of the bellframe timbers could be dated, but two of the large corner posts of the tower were successfully dated and were probably felled at the same time. The mean heartwood-sapwood boundary date of AD 1373 gives a likely empirically-derived felling date range of AD 1382–1414 for these two timbers, whilst their combined felling date range derived through OxCal is AD 1383–99 (95% probability).
