These arches have a zigzag pattern that is distinctly Norman. They are supported by beautiful carved capitals overflowing with foliage, scrollwork, birds and beasts. These carvings were uncovered by Anne Baker (1786 - 1861), after centuries of being hidden. Anne spent 11 years unpicking the plaster that covered the carvings with a bone knife.
