Figure 3:

North transverse chapel built in the time of Geoffrey, 1st Baron Camville -

late 13th century
East elevation. The high level ground floor window is so positioned because it is above an internal altar. The first floor window (with wooden shutters) to the upper chamber can be seen, as can the turret (in the angle between the chapel and the chancel) containing the spiral staircase which leads to the upper floor.

The south transverse chapel

The south chapel is now incorporated into the later south aisle, [see Fig. 4] and, like the north chapel, was an important addition to the church. On the south wall of what was the south chapel there is a low arch enclosing a recess which contains a wall painting. The position of the painting, in the upper section of the recess, could suggest that there was originally a tombstone or effigy in the lower section.17 There is a low platform, within the arch, which could well have supported a tomb slab.
