In 1856, the polygonal apse (at the east end) was added by Sir Gilbert Scott who restored and extended many great churches including Ely Cathedral and Westminster Abbey. The great east window by T. Willement, depicting the life of St. Peter, was described in the 19th century as “The most magnificent window in stained glass that has been produced in modern times”.
