Scope and Content Interior of south aisle of St Andrew's Cathedral Church, St Andrews, Fife St Andrew's Cathedral Church and Augustinian priory were begun by Bishop Arnold and King Malcolm IV in 1160 or 1161 and, being constructed on a scale unrivalled anywhere in Britain except at Norwich, took at least half a century to complete. Construction took so many years that the structure reflects changes in architectural fashion. Here the eastern windows are rounded in Romanesque style, but the western windows, probably completed a few years later, are pointed in the newer Gothic style. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
