c. Miscellaneous: internal doorway 

The four corners of the tower are buttressed, the SE corner containing the stair. The square-headed doorway opens off the nave W wall and seems to have been flush with all surfaces. The jambs, up to the last course, are chamfered. Three rows of scale pattern are incised in the lintel, not very accurately.
