Photograph by Roger Stalley. Large tomb niche on north elevation of the east end of the chancel. Trefoil headed arch with roll moulding and dogtooth ornament, supported by bell capitals (incomplete) and paired shafts on the western side. Those on the east are missing. Two fragments of a frieze are present below the cavity. They show low relief carving of a blind arcade of trefoil headed arches interspersed with quatrefoil frames. The tops of the arches are aligned along an incised line except for one at the eastern end which breaks through. A small niche with a pointed arch is sited to the east of the tomb niche.
