S transept, S wall, arcade, pier 4, capital.

Image of the feature "Blind arcades: S transept, S wall" at Ely.

by Ron Baxter.

Above the arcade supporting the S platform linking the E and W galleries is a blind arcade of intersecting round arches on circular shafts made of en-delit sections supporting attached cushion capitals with square neckings and hollow chamfered imposts with face grooves. The arches have angle rolls and face hollows. The arcade is 16 bays long, but has been abbreviated at the E owing to the insertion of a stair turret.
