Above the easternmost arch of each blind arcade is a vertical band of face chevron (roll and hollow), resembling the jambs of a doorway (cf: inner order, S doorway) or large window, but showing no sign of returning to form an aperture head. The individual blocks of stone appear to be slightly splayed. Possibly from a dismantled doorway, perhaps the 12thc. N doorway.
