Round-headed, of one order with tympanum. Enclosed by a porch.
The tympanum consists of one lower stone (now fractured) which extended from jamb to jamb, and two upper stones, the R considerably larger than the L. The carving is in distinct bands. Three rows of recessed scale ornament lie below two rows of chip-carved eight-point stars in squares. The upper row of stars is larger than the lower. These stars are bisected by the horizontal division of the tympanum which occurs here, and are slightly out of sequence. Above this are tightly packed six-petalled flowers or rosettes within recessed circles
