A simple sandstone Norman doorway (now blocked) in the S wall of the present chancel. It comprises two chamfered semi-circular headed arches, with a chamfered label above. The first arch is inset with the chamfered doorway jambs carried down to the base of the opening. There is no decoration either on the arches or jambs of the opening. The second arch, also blocked off, is considered to be a window opening. The second arch is chamfered and made of one piece of sandstone; inner jambs also chamfered.
