Piers, varied in design (round, square and octagonal, the latter with engaged shafts) have scallop capitals and rest on square plinths. They are linked by a perpyn wall(damaged). Entrance to the north transept is via a pointed chamfered arch resting on decorated scallop capitals. Through the arch there is a view of the first (easternmost) chapel of the north transept; the east elevation has twin cusped ogee lights surmounted by a cusped vessica.
