N transept, E wall, N chapel arch, N imposts

Image of the feature "Tower/Transept arches: N transept, E wall, N chapel arch" at Buildwas Abbey Church.

by Ron Baxter.

Each transept has 2 chapels on its E wall. The entrance arches are of 3 orders to E and W with slightly pointed arches. The arch and jamb orders are plain and unmoulded, the arches carried on quirked, hollow chamfered impost blocks. There are quirked chamfered labels to the 3rd order

The N arch of the N transept follows this pattern. The arch orders are generally worn with some vegetal growth, and the outer order of the W face has a loss to the outer N impost.
