Detail of statues on West Front above and to north of West door. Depicted; top, St Mark the Evangelist (1870), lower row from left; St John the Baptist C14th, St Barbara 1868, St Katherine 1868, St Roch 1868. All Victorian sculpture probably by James Redfern. The West Front has over 130 shallow niches of varying sizes on 5 levels, 73 of which contain a statue. At the top level are angels and archangels followed in succession through the lovel levels by Old Testament patriarchs, apostles and evangelists, martyrs, doctors and philosophers and, on the lower level, royalty, priests and worthy people connected with the cathedral. The majority of the statues were replaced during the 19th century, but seven, showing considerable erosion, date from 14th century. A few have been installed more recently.
