Flanking windows on E and W faces, and on turrets. Pointed, one order, clustered en-delit nook shafts with three evenly spaced shaft rings support crocket capitals with chamfered imposts with dogtooth on the chamfer. The arch has an angle roll decorated with bobbin. The label is double chamfered with a row of dogtooth on each chamfer, and extends down to the foot of the arch. Above each arch is a two-order blind oculus, the inner order a quatrefoil with chamfered edge and cusp rolls; the outer circular and double chamfered.
