E wall, billet string course and reset stone (a).

Image of the feature "String courses: Chancel" at Cambridge.

At the E end of the S chancel wall at the original eaves level (which is slightly higher than at present) is a short section of triple-billet string course which originally, perhaps, encircled the chancel at this level. At any rate it turns the corner onto the E wall, but then continues across the E wall much lower down. The wall above it shows signs of rebuilding. There is no sign of the string course on the N chancel wall.
