Nave, S gallery, arcade, bay 5, central capital.

Image of the feature "Triforium: Nave S gallery" at Ely.

The first three bays follow the design of the transept bays with double openings. Thereafter both orders 2 and 3 have hollows on the face of the arch as well as the angle roll. All capitals are cushions, but they are made to two different designs, like the nave arcade capitals. Bay 5 is unusual in having a simplified egg and dart moulding on the N, E and W faces of the impost of the central shaft capital.
