The chancel is covered with a quadripartite rib vault, whose ribs have a half-roll on the soffit and lateral centrifugal chevron on each side face consisting of a quirked roll with a cogwheel inner edge. There are four interior corbels and imposts on the interior of the chancel, each supporting one of the vault ribs. The corbels are carved with a series of beasts' heads. The imposts are plainly carved.
