Chancel, exterior, E wall, window

Image of the feature "III. Exterior Features: 2. Windows: E chancel wall" at Earl's Croome.

by Ben Read.

In the gable of the E chancel wall is a narrow round-headed light, surrounded by carved stones. The monolithic arcuated lintel bears saltires within rectangles with a pellet between the arms of each cross. The jambs, each composed of two stones of different widths, bear rows of zigzag, with rosettes or pellets in the inner triangular fields and outside the chevrons of the top R stone. The inner zigzags continue into the sill stone, where they flank two superimposed pellets. Inside, the window has a plain splayed reveal.
