Nave, N arcade W respond capital

Image of the feature "Nave: N and S arcades" at Ickleton.

by Ron Baxter.

N and S arcades of four bays, each with half-column responds at E and W, and the arcade supported on cylindrical columns. Of these, N1, N3, S1 and S3 are monolithic Barnack shafts, presumably reused, while the remainder are coursed. All bases are low, flattened rolls with simple spurs, and all capitals are simple cushions with roll neckings. The respond capitals are made of two-three blocks and have separate chamfered imposts, but the remainder are single blocks with integral reeded abaci.. Arches are plain and semicircular.
