Image of the feature "Arcades: N and S arcades" at Eastbourne.

by Kathryn Morrison.

The choir arcades are three bays long, with alternating round and octagonal piers. The arches are slightly pointed, of one order, and carry foliate or crocket capitals. The soffit of each arch is carved with a group of three rolls, the larger central roll displaying a broad fillet. The three S arches are carved with lateral chevron, with the tips of the triangles touching a keeled angle roll. The three N arched are carved with hyphenated chevron, again touching a keeled angle roll.
