The captions given here are exactly as written by Fr Patten - he frequently used compass points in his descriptions and differentiated the true and liturgial directions by using quotation marks or the word 'strictly'. As with the Holy House in 1931, Fr Patten must have carried a vision of the completed church in his mind which he could see clearly when only foundations were visible to others.
