The carvings in the south wall are arranged in three rows. In the bottom row, from the left, is a capital attached to a block, a capital and a four-legged animal, two orders of triangle perhaps carved onto a capital, and a beakhead voussoir. In the second row is a dog-like face, and two human figures which perhaps once formed part of a scene depicting the Adoration of the Shepherds and the Magi, as part of the Nativity. In the final top row is the head of a ram, and a fragment of a roundel encircling a saltire cross.
