In the NE and SE angles triple shafts with water-leaf capitals carry the formerets and ribs. In the SW and NW angles the ribs are received by corbels carved with grinning animal heads, while the W ends of the N and S formerets are received by double-scallop capitals which appear to have been carved on three faces. There is no W formeret.
