NW transept, W face from NW

Image of the feature "Blind arcades: NW transept, W wall, gallery storey" at Ely.

by Ron Baxter.

A short section (two bays) of intersecting arches and their capitals N of a trace of the outer arch of the S gallery opening. Arches have angle rolls and face hollows, the surviving capitals are double scalloped, and the imposts appear to have a roll below the face, although they are badly damaged. In the corresponding position on the S the blind arcading is not intersecting, although intersecting arcading of this design appears in the SW transept at the S end of the gallery storey.
