Image of the feature "Nave: N arcade" at Stisted.

by Ron Baxter.

The arcade has 3 pointed main bays with a shorter, lower bay at each end. Piers 1-3 are cylindrical with waterholding drum bases on octagonal plinths. Pier 4 is a rectangular chamfered pier with imposts at different heights. The arches are single order with a slight chamfer to N and S. Despite the fact that the capital of pier 1 is clearly 13thc, the arcade is here described in its entirety.
