Image of the feature "III. Exterior Features: 2. Windows: Prospect Tower, SW window" at Lewes Priory.

by Ron Baxter.

The blocked lower SW window is of a single round-headed order. Jambs are of irregular blocks with two moulded voussoirs incorporated in the R jamb. The only carved stone is the keystone of the arch; an elaborately carved voussoir or possibly a cut down capital, decorated on its face with a vertical central fluted leaf emerging from a half disc on the necking, flanked by a spiral stem to the L and a half-daisy to the R, No measurements were possible.
