Eight courses of rubble below the window in the E chancel wall is a string course consisting of eight carved stones, with a beaded cable moulding at the lower angle. On the face are saltires with pellets between the arms of each cross, similar to those of the window arch, with a groove below. The roof was subsequently heightened, and the string course terminates at the junctions with the new work.
