NW transept, W wall blind arcading

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

by Ron Baxter.

At the N end of the wall a single bay of blind arcading survives. It is round headed with coursed nook shafts, a cushion and a triple scallop capital, roll imposts and an angle roll and face hollow in the arch. In the corresponding position on the S the blind arcading is trefoil headed with crocket capitals and en-delit shafting.
