The west range of the cloister included the dormitory and undercroft, and is now part of the Cathedral Library. Part of the cloister wall and dormitory door date to the 12th century, with re-building taking place in the early 13th century. The cloister has eleven buttressed bays with three-light openings above short walls. Above are fifteen small two light windows, and six larger windows with tracery above. The top of the former dormitory is embattled.
