This now appears as a tall, gable-headed niche but is, presumably, a blocked entrance, although there is no surviving visible evidence of a doorway on the interior face of the W wall. It is entirely framed by a double row of square billet, which rests on worn bases and continues upwards, mimicking shafts, to a pair of stepped 'capitals' or imposts (cf. the imposts of the W tower arch). The billet then follows the line of the gabled arch.
