the porch: A massive 3-stepped buttress is centrally placed on the east gable
with a trefoil-headed niche in the upper part. All the openings are slender
lancets (5 on each long side, with smaller coupled lights at the east side and
a group of 4 within the transept), and porch (partly masked by a later structure)
has a pointed arch in 2 stages and the whole of the wall above contains the
chequered pattern, with rosettes in alternate tiles. within, there is an arch
braced timber roof, very deep window reveals, a continuous weathered cill band,
and 2 flush bands of block brickwork (one at impost level). At the west end

and misericord seats. The windows contain stained glass.
