I am almost sure this negative (T-max TMY not TMY-2) was made in the early 1980’s.
The first recorded church on this site was a wooden structure built in 627, the present building was begun in about 1230 and completed in 1472. Looking at its history: the site seems to have been beset by fires ! see this Wiki link.

Lovely photograph! When I visited a couple of years ago, there was much scaffold, nice to see it without!
If you look at the Wiki link, you will see that the building has constantly been worked on since it was first completed.
The last big fire gave an opportunity for major remedial work, along with archaeological exploration; previously denied.
