Plan

An aisled basilica plan terminating in the east with a chevet plat.

Elevation

The rib-vaulted nave was originally a two-story elevation, however the windows have been subsequently blocked. The diagonals are supported by the diagonally-placed plinths in conjunction with some on diagonal capitals and some on the square. Sculpture is elaborate and ornate with foliate and figurative forms.

History

Chronology

The old early to mid 12th-century nave with a tower is much like that of Clermont-de-Cambronne with the addition of a sixteenth-century choir.

Sculptural Program

Significance

Foulanges is among the buildings which were experimenting early in rib vaults. Like Bury it combines forms considered characteristically "Norman" with forms (cornice type) from the Beauvaisis.
