by Ron Baxter.

Round headed, of two orders, blocked.

First order: Plain, continuous and chamfered. On the chamfer of the arch is a mason’s mark, probably relating to a restoration.

Second order: En-delit nook-shafts on attic bases. The capitals have two rows of keeled broad leaves; the lower row consisting of a leaf on the centre of each face, rising from the plain roll necking, and the upper of leaves behind on the angles. The upper rim of the bell is shown between the leaf tips and above this is a square abacus with a thin roll at the lower angle. The impost has a quadrant hollow and a keeled angle roll at the bottom of the face. All elements have losses, but the form is clear. The arch has a keeled angle roll between face and soffit hollows, with a thin, keeled roll overhanging the face hollow to form a label.
