Of 4 bays, the 3 eastern bays rebuilt in 1630. The 12thc W bay has a 2-order pointed arch, the inner order tapered back from the arch apex to the W impost, reducing it to a single order at that point, and the outer order with a slight chamfer. The arch has a chamfered label. The E pier was apparently octagonal originally, and the semi-octagonal respond that remains carries a chamfered block capital with a roll necking and a narrow hollow chamfered impost with a groove incised at the bottom of the face. The W respond carries a square, slightly concave capital and a similar impost. Of these the imposts may be original but the capitals cannot be trusted.
