Pier 2, N and S arcades.

Image of the feature "Chancel arch/Apse arches: Pier 2 of N and S continuous arcades" at Gisburn.

by Rita Wood.

The base of the S pier has a broad chamfer; the base of the N pier is hidden in the floor. The piers are squat and cylindrical; the chancel arch is pointed and chamfered. The piers receive arches of the arcades, of the aisle and of the chancel. All the arches are chamfered and pointed, and of two orders.

At present, the functional division between nave and chancel is in the bay to the E, where there is a wooden screen.
