A single worn respond survives on the S choir aisle wall between bays 2 and 3. In form a dosseret bearing a half column, carrying a broad capital, eroded but broadly tectonic in form, with a quirked chamfered impost block above. The capital is approximately halfway up the adjoining aisle window, and the wall above shows signs of the removal of a vault.
