Two round-headed niches flank the N window of the chancel. The jambs have shallowly incised three-quarter angle shafts. The E jamb of the E niche has a well-preserved reversed cushion base. There are chamfered imposts on the inner face of the jambs. Varying sizes and colours of stone are used, some creamy yellow, some grey. The jambs of the W niche and the W jamb of the E niche are monolithic; the E jamb of the E niche has three courses.
