Chancel arch from SW

Image of the feature "IV. Interior Features: 1. Arches: a. Chancel arch/Apse arches: Chancel arch" at Hampton Bishop.

by Ron Baxter.

Single order, round-headed. The jambs are plain and square-sectioned, carrying hollow-chamfered imposts with a triple-reed between face and chamfer.  The arch is plain on its E face, but the W face has a fat angle roll with a beaked half-roll outside it and a quadrant hollow at the extrados.  There is a quirked chamfered label on the W face only.
