The tympanum consists of three stones. Although the foliate pattern carved on it looks as if it could have been carved in the 19thc., it appears in Buckler's illustration in the early 19thc. The arch around the tympanum is 0.21 m wide and the hoodmould is decorated with a hollow chamfer 0.14 m wide. This doorway has a 0.16 m high impost decorated with a hollow chamfer.
