Tomb recess on S interior chancel wall.

The tomb recess on the S side of the apse interior appears to have been a later insertion. It cuts through the upper window's lower splay and there is evidence of some slight replacements in the surrounding stonework.  The outer profile of the arch is of a form which suggests that it is not contemporary with the main work on the church, consisting of a corner roll with, on its inner side, a concave band, below which is a curved edge.
