Chancel arch N central impost from SW

Image of the feature "IV. Interior Features: 1. Arches: a. Chancel arch/Apse arches: Chancel arch" at Fawley Chapel, Brockhampton.

A triple round-headed arch of one order to E and W. The arches are carried on square piers flanking the central opening with square section responds forming the outer jambs of the flanking openings. The arches are plain and unmoulded and there are plain chamfered impost blocks. The central arch is wider and taller than the flanking ones; it is also more worn in its jambstones, imposts and voussoirs, and might thus be the only original one.
