S transept, gable, detail.

Image of the feature "III. Exterior Features: 2. Windows: S Transept, gable triplet" at New Shoreham (now Shoreham-by-Sea).

by Kathryn Morrison.

The roof of the S transept has been replaced by one with a lower pitch, as demonstrated by the scar of the earlier roof against the S wall of the crossing tower. In lowering the pitch of the roof, the triplet in the S gable was largely destroyed. What survives are the jambs of the central arch, and the inner jambs of those flanking it. These have en delit shafts with worn attic bases and scallop capitals. The plain arch of the central arch survives. This triplet may have contained windows, or may have been blind.
