The S arcade represents a major reduction in ambition from the earlier N arcade. It appears to be of two campaigns. The respond and 1st pier have the same tall plinths (165 cm and 102 cm respectively), but the remaining third and fourth more austere piers have more typical plinths (61 cm and 76 cm). The arches seem to have been built over the two sets of piers at the same time as all are the same with single chamfers and chamfered hood to the central vessel.
