padstones, with curved braces to tie beams and arcade plates support a

supported by curved struts from the tie beams of the first and second bays;
there are light halved collars across the common rafter couples. The hipped
ends have evidence of original gablets for ventilation. The common rafters
to the aisles are in separate lengths, flat-laid and tapering towards the
