Nave S clerestorey, bay 3

Image of the feature "Clerestorey: S nave clerestorey" at Chester.

by Ron Baxter.

As N clerestorey except as noted. In bay 1, the E respond capitals are moulded with fluting on the concave bells. In bay 4 there is no multiplication of supports, but there is a change in the arch profile, which has two orders, each with a heavy keeled roll, and a deep hollow between them. There is a row of nailhead outside the outer roll. Of the bay 4 capitals, those of the 1st support (E respond) and the 4th are stiff-leaf, while the 2nd, 3rd and 5th (W respond) are moulded.
