N nave arcade, pier 1 capital from SE

Image of the feature "Arcades: N nave arcade" at Upton.

by Ron Baxter.

The arcade is of 2 bays with a cylindrical pier and engaged half-column responds at the  E and W ends. As with the chancel arch, all above the imposts is 17thc, and indeed the arch profile is identical for both features. The 12thc capitals are circular in plan, but their Greek cross imposts indicate that their arches were originally of 2 orders. These imposts are quirked hollow chamfered with the quirk overhanging the hollow.  Capitals are described below.
