ranges of arches. On the east side of this transept the two Early English arches, which open to the aisle or chapel, spring from a central cylindrical pier of large size, but the responds are of clustered shafts, some having toothed capitals, and one ending in a kind of knob of foliage. The north door of the transept has internally a flat arch, and the string carried over it; externally the mouldings are rich and toothed, the shafts have nail head capitals, and toothed ornament carried down the jambs between the shafts. On the exterior the window mouldings are also toothed, and in the spaces between their heads are small quatrefoils with foliage at the points. The buttresses are charged with trefoil arches, also toothed. In the west wall within this transept are two niches; one has a good canopy, and the back of it enriched with sculptured grapes with vine leaves. The tower is supported upon four large Early English arches, but in itself is Perpendicular, of considerable beauty. Above the roof of the church it has three stories, each having two large windows, or rather, perhaps, only those of the belfry are strictly windows. Between them are buttresses charged with crocketed canopies. The parapet is a pierced and pannelled battlement, with eight large crocketed pinnacles. The nave and the south transept are circled, the rest has an open plain roof; there are shafts in the south transept intended for the springing of groining. At the entrance of the choir is a wood screen, and there is the usual ascent into it. There is a small arch north of the choir now closed, which communicated with the chapel adjoining. The north side of the choir presents an Early English arrangement, much resembling that of the end of the north transept. It has two tiers of lancet arches, the lower having slender shafts; the upper, bolder clustered ones, and toothed mouldings. The windows are set on a string course, and below them, on the north side, are three acute arched niches upon circular shafts, with moulded capitals and bases. The south aisle of the choir has been destroyed, but there are two very fine Early English arches, which once opened into it; they spring from a pier of clustered shafts, the usual toothed ornament appearing in the mouldings of the capitals. Above is a clerestory as opposite. The east window is Perpendicular, of five lights, with a transom. On the south side of the altar a vestry has been added, but rather at an

early period, as the doorway leading to it is Decorated, of great elegance in its mouldings, and slender shafts with fine foliated capitals. This door has encroached on the original sedilia, of which only one remains, which is genuine Early English, with toothed moulding, and capitals of shafts. There is also a trefoil piscina, rather plain, and above two fine lancet windows, enriched as the others, now closed. These have the quatrefoils with foliated points in the spaces about them. The toothed moulding is continued externally (within the present vestry) amidst the shafts, as in the north transept. The vestry has Perpendicular windows on the east and south sides, but on the west, which is, perhaps, the original east wall of the destroyed aisle, is a range of Early English lancets, with toothed ornament, the shafts gone, but the capitals and bases remain.

In the choir is a slab with a fine cross, the shaft of which has branches and leaves.

The font has an octagonal bowl of Perpendicular character, each face having an ogee crocketed canopy, with pinnacles between them, set upon figures of angels. The spandrils are pannelled with quatrefoiled circles, shields, animal figures, and the Tudor flower. The shaft is octagonal, and on its west side is a kneeling step.
