Image of the feature "Nave: N and S arcades" at Abbots Langley.

by Hazel Gardiner.

Of two bays, with round-headed arches. Shallow water-holding bases, usually on square, stepped, chamfered plinths, support round piers and half-round responds. There is no E respond to the S arcade. All capitals have necking and the impost is chamfered with a groove along the upright. There are two orders in the arch. The first order has angle roll on inner and outer angles, the second order is plain on the outer angle, but the inner has a fine double-step then a roll followed by a row of chevron carved frontal to the face of the arch. The label has a row of round billet.
