dc.descriptionPhotograph by Roger Stalley. West-end crypt viewed from the south. The rectangular main chamber is accessed via stone steps and is lit by four small windows in the west wall, each had a cruciform grille. A doorway leads from this main chamber to a roughly square-planned room under the west bay of the north aisle. It receives no direct lighting. The west wall has a large 'L'-shaped cupboard with a barrel vault and indications of wicker centering. It may have been used as a safe or strong-room. A smaller sealed chamber exists to the east of the main one but is not accessible.en
