Image of the feature "Arcades: N transept, N arcade" at Ely.
by Ron Baxter.
Fve bays, round headed, single order. The bays are alternately narrow (odd numbered bays) and broad (even numbers). There are angle rolls in the arch and the supports are slender circular piers with low cushion capitals with square neckings and chamfered imposts with a groove at the bottom of the face. Only the two easternmost bays and the column, capital and a few courses of the E side of the arch of the third are original. The W bays belong to the post-1699 restoration.
