S doorway, E side, capital.

Image of the feature "Doorways: S doorway, nave" at East Garston.

by Ron Baxter.

Round-headed, one order. Nook shafts with double roll bases support capitals of c.1200; a round trumpet scallop capital with leaves on the shields on the E, and an undercut stiff-leaf capital on the W. Neckings are plain rolls, and imposts have a heavy upper roll with a fillet above an undercut hollow and a slender lower roll — certainly a 13thc. form. In the arch is a keeled roll between two deep hollows with slender rolls at either side. The chamfered label is carved with a row of square billet in the chamfer.
