Studs placed in the eastern crypt indicate the location of the apse at the eastern end of the old Minster. A section of the Doomstone shows soulds being tormented in hell. Today, the eastern crypt contains the font, for baptism.
The remains of the piers of the later Norman crypt can be seen in the western crypt with mason's marks still visible on the stone.
The crypt was originally the area below the raised high altar of the Norman Minster but was rebuilt in the late 14th century re-using much of the original stone.
