The wide chancel arch has been damaged by the insertion of an elaborate screen. At embrasure level it comprises two orders but the pointed arch, which appears to represent an enlargement, comprises three orders. The embrasures are of pale limestone; the arches of ironstone. The embrasures are plain, of square section, and house shallow attic bases, en-delit colonnettes in several sections, plain cushion capitals and simply moulded imposts. The outer capital on the S side has been cut to receive the screen; the outer one on the N has been replaced.
