The cathedral church was originally part of a Benedictine Priory and refounded as a cathedral in 1541. The main body was built between 1093 and 1130, with alterations and additions made in the 13th and 15th centuries.

The chapel has a door in the south-western corner, set within a short wall. To the right is a blind arch with trefoil head and cut-off quatrefoils above. At the top of the short wall and arch is a band, and a platform or gallery above.
