Nave, N arcade, E respond.

Image of the feature "IV. Interior Features: 2. Arcades: c. Nave: N and S arcades" at New Shoreham (now Shoreham-by-Sea).

by Kathryn Morrison.

Only the E respond and one pier of each arcade survive. All are partly buried in the masonry of the walls, which enclose the remaining nave bay, and are consequently partly visible inside and partly outside the building. The semi-circular responds have lost much of their ashlar facings, but retain their multi-scallop capitals. These are quite simple, with plain V-shaped sheaths. The neckings are beaded, and the plain imposts have hollow chamfers. The capitals and imposts of the piers are of the same type. The arches comprise two orders and a label. The first order is carved with three plain rolls (ie: a soffit roll flanked by angle rolls) while the second has a larger, plain angle roll. The labels, facing both nave and aisle, are carved with simple sawtooth on a straight chamfer.
