This is a most impressive arcade - which I like, in spite of it being Victorian restoration. The chevron moulding echoes the original on the South Porch doorway.

The Lady Chapel can be seen through the arcade. There are two monuments on its north wall, visible through the first archway, to James GARDINER and Ann ALLCOTT.
