The jambs are plain with a slight chamfer, and carry plain chamfered imposts (the N a replacement) which support a plain monolithic tympanum with no lintel. The enclosing arch is stilted, with roughly-cut upright springers and an arch with a slight chamfer. It may well be, as Thurlby suggests, that in its original form, the tympanum had projections to left and right, and was thus a combination of tympanum and lintel. The stones of the arch may have been recut or replaced. No measurements were taken.
