Image of the feature "Miscellaneous: Stiff-leaf capital" at Reading Abbey, Reading.

by Ron Baxter.

Reset on SW crossing pier.The capital is badly worn but was originally octagonal with a roll necking and a grooved abacus, and is carved with stiff-leaf on three of its faces. It is strictly too late for the CRSBI, but is included as valuable evidence of work at the site in the early 13thc.
