Drawn in ink by the unidentified draughtsman associated with the west end and dome (fl. c.1685-91); some pencil drawing by Wren. Implied scale 20 ft to 1 inch.

The design increases the height of the outer podium, lengthens the scroll buttresses, places windows at both levels in alternate bays and adds a lantern with a 12-column drum that carries an elongated pineapple motif at its crown.
