Both windows are round-headed, but little remains to show the exterior design. Of the E window there is a plain arch and part of the W jamb. The W window has more, but the ashlar may not all be original. What is visible is a two-order arch, the outer order with a slight chamfer and the inner plain. The jambs of the outer order have been reconstructed, but there are sections of nook shaft included. On the interior there has also been a good deal of reconstruction, but what survives indicates a two-order window with a plain, continuous, splayed inner order and an outer order on en-delit nook shafts with a quirked angle roll in the arch and (curiously) a chamfered label. Capitals have plain square neckings. One impost survives (E window, W jamb), and this is hollow-chamfered with an angle roll between face and chamfer. Only the capitals of the W window survive:

W window, E capital: triple scallop with zigzag shields and wedges between the scallops.

W window, W capital: triple scallop with zigzag shields.
