Image of the feature "Blind arcades: Nave S aisle, S wall, bays 1–8" at Ely.
by Ron Baxter.
The scheme for these bays is for an arcade of four units per bay. The arcades are carried on en-delit shafts with attic bases, cushion capitals with chamfered neckings and hollow chamfered imposts with a roll at the bottom of the face. The arches are round-headed with angle rolls and face hollows. The blind arcade does not appear in bays 1 or 8, which contain doorways.
