Pointed arch of four orders with coursed jambs. The doorway is extremely weathered, and possibly fire damaged. It has plain, round, chamfered bases supporting attached nook-shafts (apart from the first order which has three-quarter respond shafts) and massive capitals with plain necking. The impost is faceted above each capital and continues to the outermost order. It has a narrow upright above a cavetto, very weathered. The arch is of plain, square section on all four orders.
