The aumbry from the altar.

Image of the feature "V. Furnishings: 4. Other: Aumbry in N wall of chancel." at Saxton.

This cupboard is below the one surviving round-headed window. The S wall has an indication of a similar rectangular alcove, but blocked; this may have been a wall-piscina.

The aumbry at present contains the fragmentary pre-Conquest cross-head (Collingwood 1915, 236-7; Coatsworth 2008, 245-6). Coatsworth estimates the date of the fragment as early tenth century. See Comments.
