Pointed, three orders. The first order is plain and continuous with a step. The second has en-delit nook shafts with three regularly spaced shaft-rings. Capitals are crockets with roll neckings and chamfered imposts with dogtooth on the chamfers. The arch has an angle roll with face and soffit hollows. The third order has en-delit nook shafts with smaller attached rolls, and shaft-rings of the same profile continuous with those of the second order. Capitals, neckings and imposts also follow the second order design. Between the second and third order nook shafts is a line of dogtooth. In the third order arch is an angle roll decorated with bobbin ornament. The label is double chamfered with dogtooth on both chamfers over the arch. It continues to the foot of the window on either side as a single-chamfered label addossed with a similar feature surrounding the blind arch alongside (see 3.b.(xxi)). The interior is plain and continuous.
