The shaft and base, pulpit to L.

Lunn (1879-80, 234) says: 'we found a portion of a large cylindrical shaft of First-pointed work and a mutilated base that would suit it', which he thought belonged to the chancel arch of that period (1180-90). It is presumably this piece that forms the lowest part of the slender chancel arch, immediately to the E of the pulpit.

The base is very weathered and its form is unclear.
