The E respond and the first pier of the N aisle arcade were rebuilt in 1876, but the second pier and the W respond survive. Pier 2: octagonal, with plain necking, octagonal multi-scallop capital, with three cones on each face, separated by sheaths, and hollow-chamfered impost block with a large groove on the face. The SE section of the capital may be an insertion. W respond: polygonal bracket with multi-scallop capital comprising eight plain shields: two facing N, S and E, and one facing SE and NE. The cones are separated by sheaths of V-shaped section. Plain necking and hollow-chamfered impost block with a groove on the face.
