From the inside this has a thick lintel, flush with the general surface level. The N wall was rebuilt in 1280 slightly further north (Kirk, 1960, 14; Gilleghan, 2012, 3), see narrow pile of stonework in the angle between the N and W walls. The opening is comparable to the blocked doorway in the S wall of the chancel.
