The apse has three semicircular-headed windows with chamfered head and a
sill band.

INTERIOR: truss at west end of nave with wall posts and arch braces

diaper enrichment. The apse arch is also semicircular and of two orders,
the inner plain, the outer with chevron ornament, the responds of two plain
