|The south porch
There is a striking western entrance of about 1240 with a central shaft or trumeau of Barnack stone, clustered Purbeck columns and stiff leaf carving retaining some traces of the original colouring.
The elegant south porch is of similar date and features octagonal columns and dog-tooth ornaments.
The spacious six bay nave arcade is of outstanding design with its cylindrical columns and clustered marble shafts, all surmouted by deeply cut stiff leaf capitals. Curiously, although of similar date, the clerestory and nave arcading are not aligned with each other.
|| Superb 13th century arcading said by Betjeman to be one of the best in England.
