by Ron Baxter.

This level has been rebuilt and the original gable arrangement replaced with a late-medieval window. At either end, however, is the shaft and part of an arch of a blind arcade. The shaft is an en-delit nook shaft on an attic base, and it supports a cushion capital with square necking and a hollow chamfered impost. The round-headed arch shows no evidence of intersections, and has an angle roll and face hollow. There is a chamfered hoodmould decorated on face and chamfer with chip-carved chequers.
